  • General Session: Market-Driven Approaches to Managing the Rise in Drug Prices
  • Presenter: Anita M. Allemand, PharmD, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Product Innovation and Development, CVS Health

In the last year, drug price increases have been in the double digits in the U.S., and the increases are larger and occurring more frequently than in previous years. This issue has dominated the national media through much of 2016, led to increased congressional scrutiny, and even pushed drug pricing into the presidential campaign. But there are market-driven approaches that can help moderate the rise in prices. In fact, now more than ever, health plans and large employers need a comprehensive approach to managing rising drug prices that both improves patient care and reduces unnecessary spending.

Innovation in Pharmacy Delivery: Value-Based Purchasing for Drugs
March 30, 2017

Presenters:

  • Surya Singh, M.D., Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Specialty Pharmacy, CVS Health
  • Rena Conti, Ph.D, Departments of Pediatrics Hematology/Oncology and Health Studies, The University of Chicago
  • Sarah Emond, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Institute for Clinical and Economic Review

We often hear "you get what you pay for." However, that statement seems vastly oversimplified in a multifaceted drug industry where the cost of a single medication can be dictated and influenced by a number of factors. A value-based purchasing strategy, which ties payment to the manufacturer with drug efficacy, is touted as the next big solution to the pharmacy expenditure crisis. Watch experts discuss and debate the merits of value-based purchasing and its ability to control health care costs for the long term.

Applying Innovative Technology to Enhance the Effectiveness of a Specialty Management Model
May 8, 2016, 12:30 - 1:30pm
Presenter: Trip Hofer, VP, Specialty Product, President of Accordant, a CVS Health company

By 2020, specialty drugs will represent 55% of all drug costs, with half falling under the medical benefit. Disparate benefit systems can contribute to limited visibility into a health care payor’s true specialty drug spend, and lead to complex and fragmented care. Using automated technology to manage across medical and pharmacy benefits can help generate incremental savings opportunities while improving patient outcomes. This session will explore how technology can help transform data into actionable interventions to manage the health of complex populations, improve clinical outcomes, and deliver lowest net cost for payors.

Proactive Pipeline Management to Help Address Growing Trend
May 9, 2017, 1:00-2:00 pm
Presenter:  Theresa Juday, Senior Specialty Professional, Specialty Pharmacy, CVS Health

With specialty drugs dominating the pipeline for expensive and complex conditions including autoimmune, oncology, cystic fibrosis and even high cholesterol, it is important to have a strong foundational knowledge of the changing market. Some treatment regimens for some of the most expensive specialty drugs cost up to $400,000, while the legal and regulatory treatment of these pricey and often life-saving medications add to management complexity.  Learn about key strategies to help mitigate unnecessary drug spend.

Value-Based Pharmacy Management
September 12, 2017, 3:15 – 4:15 pm

In other consumer goods industries, consumers do not routinely pay for something that does not work or is only partially effective. In healthcare, however, this has not historically been the norm.  However, we are increasingly seeing a movement toward value-based healthcare and away from fee-for-service reimbursement models. This is evidenced by greater emphasis on alternative payment models, including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), which incentivize high-quality care and better patient outcomes. In the realm of pharmacy, new models are emerging that tie reimbursement for a drug to the value delivered, not volume or a pre-set price. In this session, we will provide an overview of the emerging value-based pharmacy management models that aim to improve health outcomes and lower costs.

Value-Based Pharmacy Management
Tuesday, March 6 | 2:10 pm - 3:00 pm

With high launch prices for new drugs and year-over-year price inflation, especially for specialty brand medications, the cost impact to payors is growing and new management tools are needed. Manufacturers are also obtaining multiple supplemental indications for drugs post-launch. CVS Health analysis shows that as many as 101 supplemental indications for existing drugs could be approved between 2017 and 2019. Value-based management strategies can help ensure a sustainable future for the pharmaceutical and health care market and enable payors to control costs, while providing an affordable benefit to their plan members. Choosing the appropriate approach will depend on therapeutic area, the goals of an organization, and how data can be used to meet health-outcome and cost-reduction goals. This session will focus on indication-based management.

Highlights: 

  • The Growth of Specialty Pharmacy: Key Trends to Consider
    Monday, March 5 | 11:15 am - 11:45 am
     
    As specialty continues to grow, estimated to reach $280B by 2021, market dynamics will have wide ranging impacts on how cost-effective care is delivered. During this session, Alan will address key trends he believes are crucial for the specialty pharmacy industry to address.
     
    • Robust pipeline of specialty agents used to treat higher prevalence disease states create cost pressure, clinical promise
    • Transformative therapies, like high-cost CAR T-cell products, present a challenging economic proposition in a fragmented U.S. market
    • Advances in oncology testing creates complexity and opportunity for better patient care
    • True generics and biosimilars are emerging as a significant factor in specialty management 
       
  • Managing Specialty Costs by Improving Patient Care
    Tuesday, March 6 | 9:15 am - 9:45 am
     
    Effectively managing the cost of specialty care requires a focus on more than drug costs alone. In this PBM leadership session, Jon will discuss benefit management strategies aimed at improving health outcomes and simplifying the health care experience, and why they are key to lowering spending overall. These strategies also require working closely with multiple stakeholders, including patients, payers, and providers.

  • Managing Atopic Dermatitis and Its Drug Spend
    Tuesday, April 24 | 12:45 - 2:00 pm

    Atopic dermatitis affects approximately 17 million people in the U.S. This disease magnitude places a heavy burden on payers. With many treatment therapies available, and more on the way, how do payers assess the options to best improve patient outcomes and manage drug spend?

    This session will provide an overview of atopic dermatitis and examine the financial and therapeutic impacts of medications recently approved by the FDA. It also will look at how payers can apply this information to inform trend management, and will provide an example of how one health plan manages drug spend for atopic dermatitis.

The U.S. accounts for 80 percent of the world’s consumption of opioid painkillers and 99 percent of hydrocodone.

  • New Approach to Managing Care for Patients with Chronic Conditions and Comorbidities
    Wednesday, March 5, 2019 | 2:10 PM – 3:00 PM
     
    Nearly 60% of adults living in the United States have at least one chronic condition such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, asthma or COPD. Improving outcomes and lowering overall health care costs for these conditions requires addressing all the challenges faced by patients, while keeping them engaged throughout therapy. These are areas where traditional disease management programs are limited. Success largely depends on a patient’s ability to navigate their care between brief, and infrequent, doctor’s visits, where nearly 50% leave not understanding what they’ve been told.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1681370/

Join CVS Health Leaders to:

  • Understand how to utilize your members’ pharmacy and biometric data to capture a more holistic view of their health and address their unique complexities of care
  • Discover how new, connected technologies are enhancing the way patients monitor their therapy and communicate activity back to their care team.
  • See the value in engaging members within their own communities, at influential points in care, to help guide actionable change
