PBMI Innovation Challenge

PBMI Innovation Challenge 2022

The health care challenges we’ve faced amidst the COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the need to improve patient outcomes through greater collaboration and risk-sharing between health care organizations. Rising treatment costs, increasing Medicare enrollments, and a higher acceptance rate for specialty drugs are just a few obstacles payers and PBMs face on a regular basis.

That’s why this year’s PBMI Innovation Challenge is more important than ever. Your innovative solutions for improved clinical and economic processes and/or technologies can help benefit all stakeholders—patients, specialty pharmacies, clinicians, manufacturers, and payers—across the patient care continuum.

About the Challenge

Identify new and innovative concepts in pharmacy benefit management that can help stakeholders overcome cost barriers, and improve outcomes both clinically and economically. More broadly, the PBMI Challenge is designed to foster a patient-centric innovation community where multi-stakeholder discussions can build strong, robust challenge submissions leading to successful, life-changing processes, innovative technologies and advances in care delivery. 

The challenge aims to:

  • Bring people together (pharmacy benefit managers, patients, clinicians and payers) from across the healthcare ecosystem to identify challenges and opportunities to provide greater affordable access to lifesaving treatments while improving patient health management solutions.

The final judging of the 2022 PBMI Innovation challenge will take place on September 13th at 5:00 in our general session at the PBMI 2022 Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL
