Health Care providers are moving from traditional open catalogue contracting and procurement approaches to the establishment of Medical Device formularies that provide clinicians and patients access to all clinically superior products, while eliminating “me-too” options that have no added clinical benefit but have higher costs. As Value Based Payment models expand through Bundled Payment and Direct Employer contracts for services, the formulary approach will increasingly be adopted by Health Networks and payors to insure affordable and predictable program cost. Learn how formularies are being developed and managed, and how a vendor needs to position themselves to be a thriving partner in these models versus “being on the outside looking in”.
