Alternate Specialty Lite: A Successful Approach to Pharmacy Operations and Product Pull Through
Maryann Dowd, Director, Market Access Operations, Optinose
Nicholas Spiegl, Sr. Director, Pharmacy Operations, KnippeRx Inc.
How many commercialization opportunities have you seen go by the wayside due to poor support in retail, or have limited commercial success because of prior authorizations and formulary restrictions placed on drugs by Pharmacy Benefits Managers and large wholesaler fees? Do you know ultimately how your company’s pharmaceutical product gets to the end user – the patient, and the common hurdles patients face after securing a prescription from their prescriber?
Join Maryann Dowd and Nick Spiegl as they discuss how pharmacies and manufacturers can partner together to achieve shared goals for better patient outcomes with Specialty Lite drugs. Learn what really happens to a prescription after it gets written and sent to a pharmacy, and how technology is altering patient communication behavior.
The discussion will also include custom pharmacy solution workflows, administration support, therapy compliance, patient education and patient copay assistance from both a manufacturer and pharmacy perspective.
Hospital Credentialing: Why Should We Care?
Margo Bear, Associate Director, Commercial Analytics and Operations Abbvie & Chair of the Consortium for Universal HealthCare Credentialing, Inc.
It feels overwhelming. Highly individual hospital policies, background checks, drug screens, product service and competency letters, insurance, multiple training documents, immunizations… the list goes on and on!
The Sharing Alliance™ is delighted to bring back industry expert Margo Bear to continue the discussion from last year’s conference. In this new workshop, participants will learn more about the impact of noncompliance in this area; the newly revised National Standard (ANSI) for supplier credentialing; and how you can navigate compliant hospital access in a normal or “new normal” pandemic environment.
Pharmaceutical Investigations Case Management
Cody Fitzsimmons, Esq. Partner, Schaeffer, Venaglia, Handler and Fitzsimmons, LLP
Mike Keenan, Director, Global Product Protection, Abbvie
When an employee makes an informal or formal complaint, or when a company receives external information that alleges a serious business violation has occurred, employers should take immediate steps to begin investigations to address those allegations.
The Sharing Alliance™ welcomes Cody Fitzsimmons and is happy to welcome back Mike Keenan, former Sharing Alliance Board Member. Our two presenters will explore the topic of investigations within the pharmaceutical industry, from initial intake through investigative conclusion. Workshop participants will learn the advantages and value of conducting proper inquiries after an allegation is received.
Additional elements of the discussion will include review of various complaints received within pharma, descriptions of the departments/stakeholders within companies possessing investigative responsibility, and the sources of valuable information that exist within and outside an organization. The presentation will explore features and benefits of effective investigative case management, including the appropriate processes for documenting findings and initiating mitigation steps to achieve business value. Attendees will take away a good understanding of the benefits and importance of creating and implementing effective investigative policy.
