Implementing an efficient and effective 340B Drug Pricing Program is an unnerving task.

The vagueness and complexity of rules can result in lost savings and an increased risk of noncompliance. In order to avoid such risks, it is necessary to develop policies and procedures that are in line with the framework of the 340B Program, maintain auditable records, conduct rigorous internal and external monitoring, and respond promptly to issues in the 340B compliance process.
In this live webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the contextual and hot button compliance issues surrounding 340B.
