Description

Collaboration: Key to Patient Access to Medical Innovation

Join Patients Rising on December 5th at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.

The patient education event coincides with the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium and will explore important topics affecting patient access to the latest medical innovations. Topics will include:

Alternative Payment Models (APM’s): How can we ensure these tools are not only reasonable and accessible, but dynamic and adaptable to ever-changing conditions? The economics of health care can be essentially as complex and multi-faceted as the science of health care, and if these models are not up-to-date and keeping pace, innovation will be blocked from its rightful place at the forefront of delivering both true value and the best care to the patients who need it.

Value-Based Partnerships: How can we drive value and outcomes in oncology in the best interest of the patient? What are the current methods for assessing the value in oncology? How do we balance resource management and precision medicine? Patients need all the stakeholders to collaborate honestly and openly on solutions so that they can have the access to innovative treatments.

Oncology Care Models: The emergence of a new and innovative approach holds the possibility of an organizational breakthrough among the care model concept. We will specifically discuss the Oncology Care Model, which was designed by the Innovation Center of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMMI). We will explore the best ways this reform can help patients and caregivers, as well as the challenges that remain in its implementation and integration.

The Voice of Value: Patients, Precision and Reinventing Health Economics: The lifesaving breakthroughs of precision medicine are too often accompanied by a curious bottleneck of treatment denials from restrictive formularies, clinical pathways and value frameworks. We know getting the right patient the right treatment at the right time is a foremost mission of the health care system – It is now time to rethink health economics, and unleash new approaches to enhance patient value and medical access.

Mark you calendar as this event is open to the public and will also be live webcast on Facebook Live. We hope to see you there or join us online!
