Statement of Need/Program Overview 

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 often depends on highly specialized, coordinated multidisciplinary care among providers, patients, and payers. To effectively address all of the clinical and administrative barriers to optimal hemophilia management, managed care and specialty pharmacy professionals require comprehensive education that increases knowledge and competence in several key areas. This program will demonstrate the importance of a well-coordinated patient management effort, the most cost-effective ways of using available treatments, and the importance of collaboration among all stakeholders, which includes leveraging the success of the comprehensive care model utilized by HTCs.
