NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) and Impact Education, LLC (IMPACT) are pleased to announce the fourth annual pre-conference symposium specifically designed for specialty pharmacists, home health pharmacists, health plan pharmacists, managed Medicaid pharmacists, medical directors, and other healthcare professionals with an interest in the management of patients with hemophilia. This free, CME/CPE-certified activity is scheduled to take place on July 21, 2016 from 1:45 PM – 5:00 PM EDT at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, in conjunction with NHF’s 68th Annual Meeting, “A Brighter Future Together.”
Hemophilia is an expensive chronic condition with total annual costs that can average $250,000 or more for severe patients. Optimal outcomes require a collaborative and coordinated patient experience. The collaborative team can include an insurer, Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC), and specialty pharmacy. Specialty pharmacy services can support patient adherence to treatment and assist physicians, plans, and employers in meeting clinical and/or financial goals. This symposium features a multidisciplinary expert panel, including a Specialty Pharmacist Expert, leading Hematologist, Hemophilia Treatment Center Nurse Coordinator, and a Managed Care Pharmacy Director. The program will provide an advanced clinical update and emphasize the need for well-coordinated treatment management, best practices to integrate hemophilia care with payer policies, and the value of having collaboration among all stakeholders.
