  • Implications and Downstream Effects: Baab will explore the broader consequences, including states’ requests for Inflation Reduction Act data and reviews of the 340B Program language.
  • Impact on Contracting Roles: The session will also delve into how stacking affects decisions at the customer and contract levels.

Jeff Baab brings extensive experience to the discussion. As Senior Vice President of IntegriChain’s Advisory Services, he has been instrumental in guiding thought leadership within the firm. Previously, he served as Vice President of Life Sciences at daVIZta before its merger with IntegriChain in 2019.

This, in turn, could lead to more stable pricing structures and potentially lower costs for consumers.

Moreover, the discussion on best price stacking aligns with broader healthcare trends. The industry is moving towards greater transparency and accountability, and understanding complex pricing dynamics is a critical part of this evolution. By shedding light on these issues, Baab’s session could influence how pharmaceutical companies approach pricing and contracting in the future.
