The issues addressed included best practices for patient identification and management, in consideration of strategies related to contracting, Electronic Medical Records, burden of disease, referral and site of care, and testing.

The Result

The Results

Insights regarding patient dynamics, symptom assessment, diagnostic workup and mutation testing, potential areas of education, and distribution, access and GPO contraction were collected from clinical pharmacists, community hematologists/ oncologists and executive/community practice leaders.

The company was able to use these results to share appropriate data and improve the presentation of key information to relevant stakeholders for disease diagnosis and for disease management.
