COPD in Managed Care: The Clinical and Utilization Benefits of Exacerbation Prevention

Recorded
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
TARGET AUDIENCE
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of managed care pharmacists, medical directors, and other health care professionals who help guide the treatment of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The biopsychosocial and economic impact of COPD is substantial. Preventing exacerbations by optimizing the delivery of COPD care across the health care continuum is imperative to achieving the ultimate goal of improved patient outcomes. This engaging webinar will assemble a multidisciplinary faculty panel consisting of a pulmonologist, a primary care physician, and a managed care pharmacist to provide expert insights and discuss best practices in the management of COPD—including exacerbation risk prevention and available and emerging therapeutic options—and how these factors may be used to shape managed care pharmacy decisions and future managed care paradigms. Pertinent patient case studies will also be utilized to provide examples of how recommended approaches to evidence and value-based care can be collaborative applied to health care systems.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this activity, the participant should be better able to:
• Characterize the clinical, economic, and health care utilization burdens of COPD exacerbations
• Discuss the latest evidence-based guidelines on COPD exacerbation prevention
• Describe the clinical profiles and potential cost offsets associated with newer maintenance treatment options for COPD
• Update benefit design strategies with new data and treatment modalities to optimize health care access and outcomes for patients with COPD
