Kyle Fields is COO for Appro-Rx, a Health Information Technology (HIT) company dedicated to reduction of payer medical costs and to improvement in patient health outcomes via their provider network. He educates his audience on the Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM) system which has contributed to higher drug costs and introduces technologiesfor claims processing and evaluating the effectiveness of drug therapies employed by healthcare programs.
The principals of Appro-Rx believe strongly that the PBM model is broken, and they have set out to be industry game changers; targeting spread pricing on prescription drugs, manufacturers’ rebates and mandatory mail order programs that benefit PBMs instead of employers and patients. Mr. Fields can educate healthcare coverage providers on ways, through industry transparency, to significantly reduce drug spends while providing more effective coverage for the plan participants.
If you are involved in managing or negotiating your company's health plans but do not really know what a PBM or spread pricing is, you are a candidate for Kyle's eye-opening PBM 101 course.
