How to accelerate financial results of a specialty pharmancy
As the prevalence of specialty medications continue to grow, health systems are uniquely positioned to enhance care for patients who require these high-cost, hard-to- manage drugs. In addition to improving clinical outcomes, patient engagement, physician satisfaction and cost of care, a health system specialty pharmacy service can drive incremental revenue and improve profitability - key benefits considering COVID-19 and recent drug manufacturer 340B contract pharmacy policies.
This discussion will outline:
- The importance of embedding pharmacists and pharmacy liaisons into care teams to improve patient adherence and outcomes
- Why a comprehensive opportunity assessment is critical to ensure long-term success and overcome barriers to growth
- How accelerating an in-house specialty pharmacy service can protect against the financial impact of recent drug manufacturer 340 contract pharmacy policies
Payer-provider collaboration in a digital world
The shift to value-based care has accentuated the need to enhance collaboration, and interoperability is a key element of seamless data sharing. The dual challenges of data standardization and easy information access are compromising the ability of both payers and providers to create efficient care delivery solutions. The goal of the Da Vinci project is to help payers and providers to positively impact clinical, quality, cost and care management outcomes. Learn how payers and providers can streamline value-based care use cases using assets developed as part of the HL7 Da Vinci Project. See an example of how a payer and provider have collaborated to reduce provider burden and lower cost associated with quality measure reporting by implementing the Da Vinci quality measurement use case.
