OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION FROM eyeforpharma

Oncology manufacturers begin to redefine their patient and insurer strategies – Ramifications of the Affordable Care Act are felt more intensely.

It is often said that the pharmaceutical industry first begins to feel the effects of a financial recession 1 to 2 years after the fact – This judgement can also be applied to the far-reaching consequences of 2010’s Affordable Care Act, according to senior members of the Oncology Community in the U.S.

The consequences of a shift towards value-based cancer care are being felt deeply by manufacturers, but also and not limited to, the providers who pay for premium, top-rate oncology therapies and the insurers who reimburse them.

Ira Klein of AETNA, Laura Housman of Molecular Health, and Bill McGivney, former head of the NCCN, have confirmed that they will be joining a group of over two hundred oncology stakeholders to discuss solutions to the problems caused by this shifting environment at Oncology USA 2014 on March 25-26 in Boston, MA.

Industry leaders take part in discussion and case studies

Looking forward to the event, panellist Ira Klein, National Medical Director at AETNA stated, “I’m honoured to be collaborating with so many leaders from the US oncology landscape in order to build real partnerships, not just for the future of our companies, but for the future of cancer patients across America.”

Klein went on to explain some of the challenges to be discussed at the conference. “The friction between the rising costs of technology and the need for health delivery system reform makes this search for a new value proposition ever more urgent, and will require a level of collaboration amongst all stakeholders vital for the future successful treatment of patients afflicted with cancer.”
