In light of current trends toward stricter utilization management, increased member cost-share, and other initiatives that may create a barrier to patient access, managed care professionals and affiliated network providers require education on the economic burden and health care resource utilization of IBD.
Furthermore, given increased focus on value-based benefit design, utilization management, and payer-led clinical interventions to address shortfalls in provider practice, payer stakeholders also require an influx of valuable information to effectively address the evolving paradigm of disease management. The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, in partnership with Impact Education, LLC® and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine, offer a number of resources for those in the payer community including:
- White paper: Collaborating to Optimize High-Quality, Cost-Effective Care for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- This downloadable primer
- An Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Clinical Primer and Care Pathway Tool Kit
- Our expert interview: Discussing IBD Collaborations for Improved Access to Quality Care
