THE WOODLANDS, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As a platinum sponsor for the 16th Annual eyeforpharma Philadelphia Summit, McKesson Specialty Health will join forces with CoverMyMeds to deliver a keynote presentation on April 10 at 9:05 a.m., “Transforming Access to Therapy Through Innovations Along the Patient Journey.” Bill Nolan, vice president and general manager at McKesson Specialty Health, and Glenn Wada, president of CoverMyMeds, will present the day-one keynote address that will highlight how to:
- Optimize patient access through seamless connectivity between physicians, payers, pharmacies and biopharma companies
- Provide continuity of care from the first patient-HCP discussion through to comprehensive adherence support; and
- Enhance visibility into the patient journey and deliver timely interventions through innovative technology and integrated patient support programs.
“The future patient prescription journey has many areas of opportunity and challenges. We’ll discuss each of them in our presentation at eyeforpharma,” said Nolan. “We value the opportunity to share our perspectives and work with eyeforpharma, a global source of pharma industry insight. We’re committed to cutting-edge patient-support services that meet the needs and expectations of today’s digital consumer and look forward to sharing these insights with our conference colleagues.”
“The pace of change and consolidation in the U.S. healthcare industry is accelerating, requiring pharmaceutical companies to rapidly adapt and innovate, or potentially face extinction. Specialty pharma, consumerism, predictive analytics and patient-centricity are all forcing us to think differently,” said Wada. “Bill and I are looking forward to discussing how these dynamics are driving us to develop and deliver innovative, integrated ecosystem-based solutions and services that benefit all areas of the healthcare network.”
