Capital Rx co-founder and CEO AJ Loiacono joined Christine Winoto, host of The Health Technology Podcast, for a conversation about all things pharmacy benefit management (PBM) and drug pricing, as well as lessons he's learned from building businesses over the years, including, "There are no shortcuts in health care. You start from humble beginnings and grind your way up to relevancy."
Listen to Episode 180 below and learn about AJ's path to Capital Rx by way of pharmaceutical supply chain logistics, software implementations, and consulting to self-funded plans, the rise of drug wholesalers, and how consolidation impacted price visibility beyond the buyer. AJ and Christine also discussed the lack of drug prices in "artfully written PBM contracts that are designed to guarantee nothing," spread pricing, the essential role PBMs play in the healthcare system, accountability in predicting costs, why precision medicine is the future (and "the era of one-size-fits-all formularies will sunset"), and much, much more!
