Improve HCV and IBD Patient Care through Free Workshops Across US

April 18, 2016

Regional workshops will review HCV and IBD cases and feature panel discussions on best practices.

Attend a free workshop near you offered by AGA, PRIME Education, Inc. and the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) this spring to learn about developing a collaborative approach to treating patients with HCV and IBD. 

Participants will walk away with a better understanding of payer and provider perspectives, as well actionable knowledge that help decrease unnecessary claims denials, address gaps in the understanding of managed care policies and in communicating patient information and evidence to managed care organizations.

At each local live program, payors and providers will be able to discuss perspectives and come to an understanding of what guides their decision-making in therapy prescriptions. HCV and IBD cases will be reviewed followed by a panel discussion on best practices in communicating patient information and engaging patients in their care.

The first workshop took place in San Francisco, CA, on April 20. Check out the list below to apply to other workshops throughout the U.S.:
