President Obama has made healthcare reform one of his administration’s top priorities. Towards this goal, several billion dollars have been provided through the Recovery Act and 2010 Budget for initiatives that are intended to make the US healthcare system safer and more cost-effective. These include –
– conducting comparative effectiveness research trials to help physicians and patients make more informed decisions at the point-of-care;
– adopting health information technologies, such as ePrescribing, telemedicine and electronic medical records (EMR);
– expanding Medicaid and strengthening Medicare by focusing on program integrity issues;
– promoting more affordable drug options by expediting the approval of generic drugs and opening the market to consumers who would like to buy drugs from neighboring countries.
Healthcare reforms like these are all going to have a significant impact on the pharmaceutical industry’s bottom line. This report discusses the upcoming and proposed reforms in detail, and includes information on how these changes will impact the pharmaceutical industry in the US.
