RxStewardship: W is for Webinar

Week 6 – R X S T E W A R D S H I P


W is for Webinar

Last month, in collaboration with the Wellness Council of Indiana, we kicked off our three-part webinar series entitled Strategic Rx Stewardship. We are now eagerly counting down the days until our second installment – Diabetes Care Re-imagined: Leveraging your health center to manage diabetes – and thought we would share the 5 W’s of the event.

WHAT:      This webinar focuses on a case-study of Mountain American Credit Union’s success in leveraging their health center to provide enhanced care navigation support for their members who have diabetes.

WHO:        Betsy Bigler, President and COO for Northwind Pharmaceuticals will moderate the session and we are thrilled that she will be joined by Dr. Jeffrey Ayers, a regional medical director for CareATC, and Keith Grames, the AVP, Compensation and Benefits for Mountain American Credit Union.

WHEN:      Tuesday, April 27th from 2:00 – 3:00 EDT

WHERE:   Anywhere it is convenient for you to log in!

WHY:         There are many reasons why you should consider participating in this event including the following:

  • Over 23 million people in the United States have been diagnosed as having diabetes with an additional 7 million being undiagnosed. It is estimated that 80 million Americans have at least one risk factor for developing diabetes.
  • Diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness, non-traumatic amputation and kidney disease and is the seventh leading cause of death.
  • The cost of medical care for a patient with diabetes is approximately 2.5 times the cost of care for a similarly situated patient without diabetes.  

There are also several reasons that Northwind is committed to providing this webinar. Not the least of those reasons is that one of our core values is to leave things better than we found them. We know that by working with our employer and health center partners we can maximize the value of the pharmacy investment that employers are making. Furthermore, we believe that utilization of our clinical blueprint framework creates additional opportunities for providers to have the tools necessary to help patients successfully navigate their path to good health.   

We hope you can join us on April 27th and have included a registration link below. If you cannot attend the webinar but would like to learn more, please reach out – let’s have a conversation!

The plan review process generally centers on analytics to gauge progress or regress and to identify “areas of opportunity.” Good. The right data with … more »
