Pharmaceutical Pricing and Health Outcomes Top Trending News This Week from HealthEconomics.Com
Date:3/15/2013

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 15, 2013

Top story: The top read story on HealthEconomics.Com was a blog posting on HealthEconomics.Com’s blog, tHEORetically Speaking, by Debra Gordon, MS, entitled “Pricing Cars Like Healthcare”. Medical procedures and therapeutic interventions provided by hospitals have vastly different price points, even for those patients who desire to pay out-of-pocket, and it is exceedingly hard to determine a price at all. Ms. Gordon compares this lack of price transparency within the healthcare sector with the ease of price comparison for common consumer goods, like automobiles or car-related parts. The issues associated with health policy and pricing are debated each week on the tHEORetically Speaking blog.

Another story in HealthEconomics.Com focused on the dilemma among the pharmaceutical industry C-Suite executives who believe that the constantly evolving business model among major payers and managed markets is a “pain point”, according to research by Cegedim discussed in a Medical Marketing & Media Leadership Exchange. The silo approach currently used by pharma to address payer issues results in separation between marketing, sales, and managed markets departments. This results in a lack of understanding, inconsistency of message, market access challenges, and resource waste. This organizational breakdown is also evident in the lack of a focused digital strategy by pharma for the payer audience. HealthEconomics.Com covered this important story, and provides in-depth strategies and tactics to the pharmaceutical industry to converse with the payer audience using a variety of digital means. (Original story sourced from Medical Marketing & Media Leadership Exchange: Pact With the Payer, Oct. 2012).

Another trending story on HealthEconomics.Com was by research analyst Sarah Ray, who blogged about International Reference Pricing and compared it to sibling rivalry. International price referencing relates to how countries around the world set the price (or, more commonly, the reimbursable price) of a drug product by evaluating the price of that product in various countries in their geographical region. Ms. Ray notes that this process is akin to siblings in their never-ending quests to ensure equality amongst themselves. The pharmaceutical industry is well-versed in the international pricing game, and uses a global launch sequence to determine the order in which they launch products around the world, maximizing their price points. A recent survey by Cutting Edge Information found that price referencing was the top consideration for 67% of surveyed companies, and of utmost importance to pharma executives.
