This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of managed care pharmacy directors, clinical pharmacists, quality directors, medical directors, specialty pharmacists, quality directors, care managers, registered nurses, and other managed care and payer organization professionals

Hemophilia presents a unique challenge for managed care organizations and payer professionals: a disease with low incidence that is associated with high costs due to a significant need for health care resources. Successful management of hemophilia is often dependent on highly specialized, coordinated multidisciplinary care among providers, patients, and payers. To effectively address the clinical and administrative barriers to optimal hemophilia management, managed care and specialty pharmacy professionals first require knowledge and competence related to the clinical management of hemophilia, in several key areas including etiology, epidemiology, disease severity, morbidity/clinical manifestations, treatment modalities, and Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTCs) and the Integrated Care Model.
