This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of managed care pharmacy directors, clinical pharmacists, quality directors, medical directors, pharmacy directors, specialty pharmacists, quality directors, care managers, registered nurses, and other managed care and payer organization professionals.

  STATEMENT OF NEED / PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Psoriasis is one of the most common autoimmune diseases to develop in genetically susceptible individuals with an estimated 7.5 million Americans afflicted by psoriasis; and psoriatic arthritis is considered to be one of the most disabling types of arthritis affecting as many as 2.3 million Americans. Direct annual health care costs assigned to the management of psoriatic disease is estimated to be as high as $2.0-3.0 billion. As novel agents become available, treatment decision making is becoming more complex and managed care professionals need to appropriately and effectively design benefits that optimize both cost-efficiency and patient outcomes.

The expert faculty panel will present the latest clinical data to recommend appropriate therapies, utilize comparative effectiveness research (CER), design appropriate medical and pharmacy benefits, and implement health care quality measures. Emerging clinical and economic techniques, practical examples, and expert recommendations will be formulated to illuminate key learnings using psoriatic disease as the therapeutic area of focus.

  EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:
  • Assess current and emerging therapies for the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and cite their clinical trial data.
  • Review the comparative effectiveness research (CER) framework and discuss application of CER findings to benefit design and clinical decision making for patients with psoriatic disease.
  • Identify barriers to adherence and formulate strategies to overcome them.
  • Integrate interventions to coordinate health plan and affiliated provider's efforts in the health care reform era that will lead to better outcomes for patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
