Student Pharmacist Session (SP1) : The Evolution of Innovation Within the Managed Care Landscape – What’s Next?  

Thursday, March 31, 2:45 pm – 4:00 pm  

Molly Borchardt

Faculty: Molly Borchardt, PharmD 
Manager, Specialty Pharmacy Programs  
Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina 

Since its inception, managed care pharmacy has continued to evolve to keep pace with evolving new drug trends. In order to understand the impact of recent key innovations and changes in the marketplace, it is important to have a strong foundation of managed care pharmacy concepts. Traditional management levers alone are not able to fully address the next-generation complexities that are faced in the market today.  
This session will discuss traditional managed care pharmacy levers and strategies, and detail how these levers leave gaps when applied to recent market innovations. In addition, faculty will discuss key innovative topics and solutions from recent years and on the horizon, including biosimilars, gene therapy and cell therapy, digital therapeutics, and alternative payment structures.  

Learning Objectives: 

At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to: 

  1. Summarize traditional managed care levers used to control drug spend. 
  2. Assess how traditional managed care levers may leave management gaps with recent market innovations. 
  3. Define alternative payments models, including value-based payment structures and how they address gaps in traditional payment models. 
  4. Describe the impact of biosimilars, including market uptake and key future entrants. 
  5. Illustrate other industry innovations, including digital therapeutics, and how these may further change the market landscape going forward.
