Target Audience
  • Medical Directors, Pharmacy Directors, specialty pharmacists, and clinical pharmacists from health plans, HMOs, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), specialty pharmacy providers (SPPs), integrated health systems, employers, quality organizations, and other managed care organizations (MCOs)
  • Managed care-affiliated care team members involved with patient evaluation, education, and follow-up for hemophilia patients including: physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and case managers
Program Overview
Due to the advent of new and more costly treatment modalities, the management of pediatric and adult hemophilia patients has become more complicated for physicians, nurses, case managers, payers, specialty pharmacies, home health providers and family/caregivers. In the absence of a coordinated educational effort, the full benefits of care coordination have not yet been achieved. This educational initiative will provide managed care professionals with the latest information, presented by multi-disciplinary expert faculty, on the management of pediatric and adult hemophilia patients in health plan and other managed care settings. The hemophilia comprehensive care team is represented on the faculty panel, including Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) Medical Directors, HTC Nurse Coordinators, Managed Care Executives, and Specialty Pharmacy and Home Infusion Providers.

Educational Objectives
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
  • Describe the effects of hemophilia with and without inhibitors on clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes
  • Evaluate current and emerging hemophilia therapies for children and adults, with and without inhibitors
  • Employ a collaborative and comprehensive care model, including partnering HTCs, to optimize clinical and economic outcomes for health plan patients with hemophilia
  • Recommend hemophilia management policies and protocols to optimize patient outcomes in a managed care and/or specialty pharmacy setting

Learning Goal/Purpose
This educational initiative is designed to provide managed care professionals with the latest clinical data and practice strategies in the management of pediatric and adult hemophilia patients in health plan and other managed care settings.
