IntegriChain Regulatory Experts to Speak at Informa’s Medicaid and GP Congress

Philadelphia, PA, May 27, 2021 – IntegriChain, delivering Life Sciences’ only comprehensive data and business process platform for market access, today announced that two senior Advisory experts will present at Informa’s upcoming Medicaid & GP Congress. Jeff Baab, Vice President, Rupal Patel, Senior Director, and Manish Rathod, Executive Director of Industry Solutions, are all experts in the latest regulatory landscape affecting Contracts & Pricing teams, advising Life Sciences manufacturers of all sizes and complexity on the impacts of current and pending regulations. IntegriChain is a sponsor of the virtual conference, which runs June 8-11, 2021.

“For Life Sciences manufacturers, the regulatory landscape is muddled with numerous new rules and pending regulations that affect both their government and commercial channels as well as short- and long-term planning,” said Baab. “At IntegriChain, it’s our job to interpret current and pending regulatory changes — and their impact on Contracts & Pricing teams, processes, and compliance requirements — for hundreds of manufacturers. We look forward to these sessions to provide clarity and focus for attendees.”

IntegriChain’s sessions during Medicaid & GP Congress are as follows.

Late last year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized regulatory changes to modernize Medicaid prescription drug purchasing and propel payment innovation by providing states, private payers, and manufacturers more flexibility to enter into value-based purchasing  arrangements for prescription drugs.
