Personalized medicine holds the promise of revolutionizing the delivery of health care by allowing treatments to be tailored to an individual's genetic make-up. Implementation models and resources are emerging to help translate personalized medicine into routine practice. However, the application of personalized medicine information can be complex for both individual treatment decisions and managed care organizations.
When considering this growing area, payers may be confronted with a variety of questions. Should companion diagnostic products or genetic tests be required before treatment? What are appropriate criteria for approving treatments? How can limited healthcare funds be used to optimize outcomes? How can medical and pharmacy benefits be integrated? During this presentation, experts will explore personalized medicine and analyze key issues for consideration by third party payers.
This knowledge-based activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pharmacists in managed care settings.
Upon completion of this home study activity, participants should be able to:
1. The Personalized Medicine Landscape: James M. Hoffman, PharmD, MS, BCPS
2. Considerations for Managed Care: Susan Garfield, DrPH
