Topic Information Advanced Data Analytics and Pharmacy Solutions: 

What's really driving employer medical and pharmacy costs? It may not be what you think...

In this lesson Participants will learn:

  • How predictive analytics can be used to forecast these pharmacy costs for a covered population.
  • How forward-thinking employers can tap into strategies that offer more direct cost savings.
  • Specific pharmacy management strategies to mitigate the ever changing, complex nature of Pharmacy Benefit Managers' relationships with Pharmacies and Pharmaceutical Manufacturers. We will discuss how these interdependencies effect how they contract with Plan Sponsors and how Plan Sponsors can be diligent in negotiating and managing effective contracts to drive significant savings to the plan.
