Free Workshops Will Help Bridge Gaps Between Payors, Providers

April 6, 2016

Join one of several free live workshops across the U.S. to hear from experts about improving care for patients with HCV and IBD.

Beginning this month, in San Francisco (April 20), Miami (April 27) and Philadelphia (April 28), 12 free live workshops will take place to help bridge gaps between payors and providers in treating patients with HCV and IBD.

Experts in HCV, IBD, and managed care pharmacy will bring their perspectives and lead participants in:

  • Distinguishing appropriate patient-specific and disease-specific information to capture as part of medical necessity decision-making for HCV and IBD treatments.
  • Evaluating the scientific evidence and expert recommendations in HCV and IBD to inform treatment decisions and optimize patient outcomes.
  • Finding ways to decrease unnecessary claims denials in advocating for appropriate treatment of patients with IBD or HCV.
  • Implementing collaborative provider-payor strategies to promote adherence to medication and monitoring regimens in patients with IBD or HCV.

The workshops are free and offer CME. Please join us. Learn more and register

This series of workshops were developed in collaboration between the AGA Institute, PRIME Education, Inc. and the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP).
