On August 27, 2015, the Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI) and Mid-America Coalition on Health Care (MACHC) convened a meeting of local employers and their supplier partners to discuss the role of specialty pharmacy in the health, productivity and absence management framework. The meeting addressed two critical issues facing employers in managing the health and productivity of their workforce: making the business case for the value of health to senior leaders and broadening the discussion of health management to better emphasize the role of specialty pharmacy.
