Pharmacy Track
The health system pharmacy plays a vital role in patient outcomes and IDN pharmacy executives continue to look for innovative methods of improving quality while keeping costs low.  The problems facing the pharmacy segment of healthcare are complex and include maintaining compliance with a myriad of changing regulations while attempting to keep up with increased demand.  The Pharmacy Track will have two distinct themes at the Spring IDN Summit.  Theme 1 is Important Actions to Mitigate Revenue Loss.  Topics covered will include the 2018 OPPS Rule, the biosimilar drug landscape, product shortages and reducing drug spend. 
Theme 2 is Retooling Pharmacy Operations.  Discussion will be centered around innovations and trends including using a Pharmacy consolidated services center, best practices for managing costs in ambulatory practices, and specialty pharmacies.
