  Abstract:  Managing a group benefits plan is hard work and presents an ever-changing set of challenges. Human resources and procurement professionals are tasked with sourcing the right vendors at the right time and the right price. Meanwhile, health-care reform is here, complicating things along the way. Delivering a valuable and efficient set of health and welfare programs requires focus in several areas, each of which will be explored. Managing pharmacy spend is particularly important, as it is often the cost component increasing at the fastest rate, and new and expensive drugs come out daily. Managing the health of the population also presents a unique set of challenges, as those who suffer from chronic illness require a different set of interventions than those who have risky behavior or are already acutely ill.

Learning Objectives:
     1.    Describe how health-care reform could affect organizations.
     2.    Explain how the pharmacy design presented can mitigate unintended excess utilization and costs.
     3.    Explore how custom clinical programs can support managing the health of a population.
