The following program content was provided by the speaker.

Overview

The American Hospital Association and other national organizations announced a new initiative for hospitals to demonstrate good stewardship of the 340B drug discount program. The initiative asks 340B hospitals to follow three principles: communicate the value of the 340B program, disclose 340B estimated savings, and continue to perform rigorous internal review ― and acknowledge their commitment to do so. AHA staff will discuss the impetus for the Good Stewardship initiative, as well as the principles and their recommended implementation. This will include AHA’s guidance for reporting the estimated financial benefit of the 340B program. Participants will have the opportunity ask questions and offer comments about the new AHA initiative.
