CIS Hosts Advanced GP Forum at the 2015 IIR Government Programs Summit

Via Chris Cobourn, Senior Vice President of Commercial Compliance, CIS

It is nearly March again, and although spring is decidedly not in the air, it is not too early to make plans to attend the CIS Advanced GP Forum on the IIR Government Programs Summit Pre-Conference day, March 23rd.

This forum has grown and evolved over the years.  It is a PowerPoint-free day, with open discussion on current and topical issues for the GP professional.  CIS facilitates the day, posing questions to our esteemed panel of experts.

The discussion has always been intriguing and informative, especially for the GP Geek in each of us, and it is amazing how quickly the day goes.

Our panel this year includes:
  • Sabrina Yohai, Assistant General Counsel, Pfizer
  • Michael Hepburn, Senior Director, Government Contracts, Janssen R&D, LLC
  • Jennifer Norton, Senior Director, Pricing & Contract Administration – Managed Markets, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
  • John Shakow, Partner, FDA and Life Sciences Practice Group, King & Spalding

If you have participated in CIS thought leadership venues, such as our monthly GP Forum call or our ongoing GP Webinar series, you know that we strive to foster dialogue in the GP community.  This all day forum began 6 years ago now and has become a mainstay of IIR’s GP Summit as a venue for the GP professional to meet with their peers.

Venues like this are even more critical this year, with the AMP Final Rule now being published possibly in April.  Additionally, there are the deep and complex topics that continue to vex us, such as bundling, smoothing, BFSF/FMV, Gross to Net, Medicaid Expansion, and the PHS program.  We hope to see you this year at the Advanced GP Forum, and I welcome any inquiries in advance of topics you would like to discuss there!
