Health plan medical and pharmacy directors, decision makers for integrated health systems and pharmacy benefit managers, and other managed care executives in attendance heard thought-provoking presentations about demographic shifts, drug-related morbidity and mortality, forms of health care rationing, and direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising.
