Specialty Healthcare Benefits Council

On behalf of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Society, I would
like to announce an organizational change to: Specialty

Healthcare Benefits Council.

As the development of specialty health products and services increase we see the parallel need for responsible accountability. We seek to ensure utilization is appropriate and clinically sound. By bringing together the community of stakeholders we look to provide pathways to allow sustainable use of these products. With evolution of this process we seek to define future benefit options, distribution systems and management tools to weave together the benefit systems that deliver a product to the right patient at the right time. Effective use of specialty health products and services occur only when value is clear and consistent with scientific evidence. We seek value through the balance of cost, access and quality. As a non-profit organization we provide a forum for collaboration among payers, developers, vendors and supporters in this dynamic marketplace.
