Proactive Steps to Ensure Appropriate Utilization of the First Disease-Modifying Therapy for Alzheimer Disease

Widespread hope exists that aducanumab will soon gain Food and Drug Administration approval as the first disease-modifying therapy for patients with mild cognitive impairment associated with
Alzheimer disease (AD), which could significantly impact the management of AD. If approved, challenges need to be addressed to properly identify patients who will benefit from treatment and ensure access.

EVERSANA experts provide recommendations for proactive steps for key stakeholders – patients, providers, health systems, CMS services, and payers – on where pathways can help to ensure that all aspects of the Quadruple Aim—individual patient experience, population health, cost of care, and caregiver support—are addressed. Attainment of each of these aims is only possible through guidance, such as clinical pathways, that helps to achieve favorable clinical and financial outcomes across stakeholders.
