A Live Webinar Panel Discussion

Thursday, May 28, 2020
11AM PDT | 2PM EDT

Over the past decade, the oncology landscape has undergone dramatic changes, through an unprecedented number of new anti-cancer treatments that have increased both the complexity and cost of care.

Oncology focused analytics, and real-world evidence can help health plans make educated predictions on future trends, which will benefit patients by ensuring they receive the right drugs and the right support to fund their treatment.

In this webinar, Oncology Analytics will discuss approaches and best practices for the use of real-world data and analytics for oncology utilization management, using their platform to demonstrate.

During this webinar, the following topics will be explored:

  • How to combine a health plan’s claims data with oncology-focused EMR data (pathology, labs, etc.) to get a 360 view of a patient’s status as it relates to the requested therapy.
  • How to leverage real-world data and analytics to understand your provider network at a deeper level.
  • How to utilize prior authorization technology to make the shift from faxes to online submission and immediate adjudication.
  • How to organize claims and clinical data to get a better understanding of cancer drug therapies, including drug effects by disease and the cost effects of biosimilars.
