AMCP Market Insights: Summit on Psoriasis
Findings from an AMCP Market Insights Program
In the last 20 years, the dermatology space has gained increasing attention, in part due to advances in therapeutics and improved outcomes across dermatologic diseases. Scientific advances have led to a better understanding of immunology and, particularly, how this pertains to the skin. The recent focus on the importance of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) provides an additional lens by which to demonstrate the efficacy of novel therapeutic interventions, revealing the impact skin diseases have on patients’ lives and the dramatic effect of improving skin conditions. AMCP convened an expert forum of stakeholders on the management of psoriasis. Summit attendees explored current management of psoriasis, identified opportunities for improvement, and offered potential solutions that may help guide future approaches to providing access to effective, innovative care while containing pharmaceutical costs.
