Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

Today’s Newsletter from HealthEconomics.Com covers a fascinating overview of the history of evidence-based medicine (EBM), and describes the role of the patient in interpreting and applying EBM to their own health care. The article also discusses the physician’s dilemma of choosing either an evidence-based treatment plan that is based on population impact or one that predominantly considers the individual patient. Which is correct? The original article was sourced from the January issue of the American Medical Association Journal of Ethics.

Are drug price cuts to achieve reimbursement in the United Kingdom actually undermining pharma’s value story for their drug products, or is this tactic helping to bolster the cost-effectiveness story? Another top story reports Lucentis (ranibizumab) for impaired sight in some patients with diabetic macular edema has now won the backing of NICE, after the makers of the drug agreed to discount the price and provide additional evidence of efficacy. The story, originally published by Bloomberg, is covered in HealthEconomics.Com News.

In an article by PharmaPro.Com, key issues are outlined. Some challenges pre-date the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and others have been caused by the passage of the ACA. Challenges include an undetermined impact of the individual mandate, reduced patient access to physicians, increased medical care wait times, and expansion of state Medicaid programs. The steps that the pharmaceutical industry needs to take to succeed in this post-election arena are detailed in this article on HealthEconomics.Com.
