Specialty Pharmacy Revenue Opportunity: Infusion

Key Considerations for Optimizing Infusion Services

  • Event Date:
  • Event Time: Noon Central

As the demand for specialty medications grows, payers are pushing back on the traditional method of delivering infusion services through the hospital outpatient department (HOPD) in order to bring down costs. Specifically, payers are mandating that hospitals find less costly alternative sites of care (ASOCs) to administer those infusions. Hospitals without ASOCs in place are seeing a decline in these patients.

To build a viable plan for keeping patients in the system, hospitals and health systems need to think beyond the antiquated one-size-fits-all box. Crafting an ambulatory strategy that addresses infusion as an integral part of the hospital’s specialty pharmacy services requires compiling and integrating multiple smaller strategies. An efficient strategy also makes room for treating additional patients.

In this webinar by Comprehensive Pharmacy Services (CPS), which provides pharmacy services to nearly 800 U.S. hospitals and health systems, we identify the component parts of an overarching specialty pharmacy infusion strategy.

What You Will Learn:

  • Current payer trends in the HOPD.
  • Options for responding to the changing payer landscape.
  • Options for use of manufacturer patient support programs.
