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. 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 care pathways, design appropriate medical and pharmacy benefits, and implement health care quality measures.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

After completing the activity, participants should be better able to:
  • Assess current and emerging therapies for the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and cite their clinical trial data.
  • Examine alignment of managed care psoriatic disease treatment algorithms with recent clinical trial data.
  • Describe care pathways and their application as a cost management tool in psoriatic disease.
  • Employ specialty pharmacy and disease management services for psoriatic disease patients.
