A Mile in Their Shoes: Understanding the Specialty Patient Journey

Wednesday, October 16, 2019, 2:00-3:00 pm ET

The specialty patient journey is often complex, costly, confusing, and controversial. Barriers throughout the journey may stand in the way of optimal patient outcomes, timely access to medications, and patients’ ability to pay for their medications. Speakers will summarize what is known about the specialty patient journey from the literature and provide case stories to illustrate some of the frequent roadblocks. Finally, we will advocate for recommendations to simplify and streamline the specialty patient journey.
