Description:
Atopic dermatitis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by persistent itching that can severely affect quality of life. This condition evolves from a combination of skin barrier defects and immune-mediated responses involving activated T-helper cells and related cytokines. Fortunately for patients with this disease, several new treatments have recently become available, and more are on the horizon, including JAK inhibitors, that have shown improved efficacy and safety, offering patients the potential for improved outcomes and quality of life.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explore the unmet economic needs in atopic dermatitis (AD) and the impact of inadequately treated disease on physical and mental health, quality of life, costs and work productivity

  • Describe approaches currently utilized by third party payers to manage costs associated with the care of patients with AD

  • Discuss the managed care considerations of emerging therapies, including JAK inhibitors, by exploring where these agents may fit into current AD management paradigm

  • Transform therapeutic advances and resource utilization data on emerging therapies in AD into informed health plan decisions and formulary discussions
