Drug Benefit Case Studies Needed

PBMI Accepting Speaker Proposals for 2010 Conference

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - June 5, 2009) - A well-crafted case study is a powerful educational and marketing tool. The Pharmacy Benefit Management Institute's (PBMI) 15th Anniversary Drug Benefit Conference offers industry experts an opportunity to present case studies that showcase solutions to critical drug benefit challenges. Speaker proposals will be accepted until August 14, 2009 for the conference to be held February 17-19, 2010 in Phoenix.

"PBMI has a long-standing reputation for educating the industry on the best approaches for managing the drug benefit," says Dana H. Felthouse, MBA, president of PBMI. "We want conference proposals that educate employers, health plans, union groups, and third-party administrators. These stakeholders say they benefit most from case studies that show how other purchasers are overcoming challenges similar to their own."

Proposals for presentations that provide insight on drug benefit trends also are welcome. Speakers are needed for general sessions and breakout sessions in three tracks: HR Perspectives, Managed Care Pharmacy Perspectives, and Industry Trends.

Conference attendees typically include human resource generalists as well as benefits specialists and managed care pharmacy professionals. Some attendees want to know more about the fundamentals of pharmacy benefit management while others want more technical information. PBMI will offer sessions that meet both needs. The conference will offer 12 continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits as well as continuing education credit for human resource professionals.

Prospective speakers should submit proposals at http://pbmi.com/SpeakerPresentation.asp. All speakers will receive free registration to the 2-day conference.

The Pharmacy Benefit Management Institute provides research, continuing education and Web resources that help health care benefit executives work effectively with pharmacy benefit managers to improve the design and management of drug benefit programs.
