Primary immunodeficiency diseases (PIDD) are a group of more than 300 rare, chronic disorders in which part of the body's immune system is missing or functions improperly. While not contagious, these diseases are caused by hereditary or genetic defects, and, although some disorders present at birth or in early childhood, the disorders can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender. Fortunately for patients with PIDD, the treatment paradigm has exploded in the past 10 years, giving HCPs many more options in managing the patient population. This live webinar series will feature strategies to overcome challenges in the optimal treatment of PIDD, updates on immunoglobulin replacement therapies, and practical managed care approaches to provide cost-effective solutions to improve both clinical and economic outcomes.

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

  • Explore the total cost of care for PIDD, including direct costs associated with drug therapy and associated infections from non-treatment, as well as indirect costs

  • Assess recent pharmacoeconomic studies pertaining to Ig replacement therapy and the budgetary implications of these data in a managed care framework

  • Apply methods to enable optimal cost management of Ig replacement therapy to be realized by multiple PIDD stakeholders including managed care organizations

  • Analyze strategies used by managed care organizations to facilitate high quality care for members with PIDD, and how Ig replacement therapies affect those strategies
