    The cost of innovation: Taking a closer look at specialty drugs

    Innovative drug therapies have had a tremendous impact on the pharmaceutical industry in just a matter of a few decades. What began as a small group of drugs exclusively available to treat the most complex and rare conditions has since widened its scope. Today, there are hundreds of specialty drugs on the market and they continue to impact the lives of people managing life-threatening conditions. As the steady flow of new innovative drug therapies becomes available, utilization of these drugs are predicted to increase. This Master Class is a continuation of last year's discussion on Pharmacy Trends. Join us as we take a closer look into the world of specialty drugs, utilization and the rising health care costs.

    In this one-hour interactive webinar, HR benefits managers will learn about new specialty pharmacy trends and strategies to help save lives and balance the budget. Steve Marciniak, Director II Medical Drug Management, Trish Stievater, Pharm.D., Director Pharmacy Benefit Clinical Services, and Jacob Chafee, Clinical Pharmacist, Emerging Therapies - Clinical Services will share their expertise on everything from specialty drug costs, the specialty drug pipeline, site of care programs, utilization management and emerging partnerships in the industry that integrate medical and pharmacy care to deliver the best treatment at the lowest costs. They will also share tips on how HR leaders can make the best decisions for pharmacy benefits for their employees and families.
