BioNJ’s Beyond Value Frameworks Workshop

October 11

Continuing the Conversation…Seeking Solutions
Thursday, October 11, 2018 | Amicus Therapeutics, Cranbury, NJ

BioNJ will host its Third Annual Beyond Value Frameworks Workshop on October 11 at Amicus Therapeutics bringing together Patients, industry, payers, academia and government to discuss and contribute to the development of new platforms that will provide Patients with access to the right medicines at the right time at affordable out-of-pocket costs.

Designed for individuals responsible for pricing, policy, market access and reimbursement, attendees will learn how to become engaged and influential regarding framework decisions, to gather tools and information to be better able to challenge value assessments, to measure Patient-centered value and to learn about new analytic computational platforms that can demonstrate and calculate drug value.

An Interactive Program with Industry Thought Leaders

8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. Registration and Networking Breakfast
8:45 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Welcome and Opening Remarks
Debbie Hart, President & CEO, BioNJ
9:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. A Fireside Chat with Andrew Pecora, M.D., Chief Innovations Officer, Hackensack Meridian Health

Don’t Do Too Much, Don’t Do Too Little… Do the Right Thing Each Time
The convergence of big data into the clinical environment has created powerful point-of-service tools allowing providers and Patients to tailor treatment plans to meet personal needs — yielding better, more cost-effective clinical results. As a result, healthcare delivery is changing; creating an opportunity for the biopharma industry, Patients, regulators, payers and policymakers to look differently at the drug development process, the regulatory environment and the healthcare system as a whole. At the forefront of this transformation is Dr. Pecora who will start the day’s discussion by sharing a new paradigm being done at Hackensack Meridian Health that results in better Patient clinical outcomes and lowers total health care costs … by doing what’s right for the Patient…every time.

9:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. Patient-Centered Access: Real Life Examples
Don Sawyer, Vice President, U.S. Market Access, Celgene
Leigh Anne Leas, Vice President and U.S. Country Head, Public Policy, Novartis
Ellen Miller-Sonet, Chief Strategy and Policy Officer CancerCare
Moderator: Kevin Rigby, General Manager, Rigby ConsultingCost-sharing barriers are a leading reason that patients do not take medicines as prescribed — resulting in billions of dollars of unnecessary expenses to the healthcare system and ultimately negatively impacting successful medical treatment. As a result, biopharma companies are beginning to proactively work with healthcare payers on specially designed programs ensuring that patients have access to the therapies they need without deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance. During this interactive session, you’ll hear real-life examples and case studies on what’s worked, what hasn’t and lessons learned.
10:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Networking Break
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Identifying Barriers to Adoption: Formulating a Multi-Voice Approach
Bob Gold, CEO, GoMo Health
Steven Peskin, M.D., Executive Medical Director, Population Management, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey
Terry Wilcox, Co-Founder & Executive Director, Patients Rising and Patients Rising NOW
Moderator: Robert Goldberg, Ph.D., Vice President & Founder, Center for Medicine in the Public Interest

While “personalized medicine” offers great promise for improving patient outcomes, it has had little impact on healthcare delivery. In particular, there are barriers limiting the development and use of patient-level evidence to measure and predict outcomes. As a result, public policy and coverage decisions are still being made on a population-wide basis. Our panel will discuss what those barriers are and how biotech companies, patients, providers and payors can overcome them.
12:00 p.m. – 12:15 p.m. Closing Remarks
12:15 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Interactive Working Lunch: Enabling Prospective, Personalized Medicine
