PBGH & IBI Regional Event

Biosimilars: The Next Frontier

Postponed until further notice.

With the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the incredible speed at which things are changing around us, IBI & PBGH are continually working to adapt our operations and programs to ensure our staff, members, and friends are kept safe and healthy.

To that end, we have decided to postpone the Biosimilars: The Next Frontier regional event that was originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 22 in Oakland.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will update members on the rescheduled date of the program and any other decisions made regarding this event. Registration fees, sponsorships, and speaking arrangements will automatically transfer over to the new event when rescheduled.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to forum@ibiweb.org.

Biologics have grown to be a vital component of modern medicine, bringing life-saving treatments to patients suffering from deadly diseases and providing remedies and solutions for those managing chronic conditions.

With many of the biologics facing patent expiration in the upcoming years, the biosimilar market has the foundation for future growth. This potentially presents unique opportunities to reduce healthcare costs and expand access to more affordable treatments for patients. Biosimilars products may open a new frontier to improving adherence and health outcomes—but to get there, research and healthy competition to fuel market growth is needed.

By attending this event, participants can expect to leave the day with an understanding of the potential for biosimilars and the importance of promoting their use in order to sustain this necessary competitive force. Topics will cover:

  • What are bioimilars?
  • The changing marketplace
  • Alignment of incentives among purchaser, providers and plans
  • Optimizing access and affordability through benefit design
