To assess older Americans' willingness to trade off the possibility of choosing or changing their prescription drug plan for lower drug spending. We used data from the Kaiser Family Foundation Health Tracking Poll on prescription drugs carried out in February 2019. This nationwide telephone survey oversampled participants aged 65 years and older who, when weighted, were representative of the US older adult population. Older adults were strongly in favor of the government negotiating drug prices in Medicare ...
Regulation of drug prices that ensures adequate access to effective treatments and promotes innovation is a global challenge. In the United States, the government does not regulate drug prices when they come onto market. On the other hand, in countries such as France and Brazil, government agencies are responsible for setting up price limits by leveraging the interests of the companies and the countries' population. In Brazil, safety and efficacy of drugs are regulated by the Brazilian Health Regulatory Age...
Payers and purchasers in the United States seek to moderate drug prices and align them with the incremental clinical benefit offered by individual medications; some policymakers have proposed linking U.S. prices to an index of prices paid in other nations. The German health care system resembles that of the United States in featuring multiple private payers but differs in featuring a highly coordinated process of comparative clinical assessment and price negotiations for drugs.
The United States relies primarily on market forces to determine prices for drugs, whereas most other industrialized countries use a variety of approaches to determine drug prices. Branded drug companies have patents and market exclusivity periods in most industrialized countries. During this period, pharmaceutical companies are allowed to set their list price as high as they prefer in the United States owing to the absence of government price control mechanisms that exist in other countries. Insured patien...
External reference pricing (ERP) seeks to rationalize prices and contain costs using foreign prices as a reference for the determination of domestic prices and is often used as the starting point for the facilitation of negotiations between health authorities and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Common themes and emerging trends for the use of technology to support mental health and psychosocial well-being in limited resource settings: A review of the literature: Common themes and emerging trends for eMental health in limited resource settings.
There are significant disparities in access to mental health care. With the burgeoning of technologies for health, digital tools have been leveraged within mental health and psychosocial support programming (eMental health). A review of the literature was conducted to understand and identify how eMental health has been used in resource-limited settings in general. PubMed, Ovid Medline and Web of Science were searched. Six-hundred and thirty full-text articles were identified and assessed for eligibility; of...
Informed by a discourse analysis, this article examines the framing of equity within the UK's digital health policies between 2010 and 2017, focusing on England's development of NHS Digital and its situation within the UK Government's wider digital strategy. Analysis of significant policy documents reveals three interrelated discourses that are engaged within England's digital health policies: equity as a neoliberal imaginary of digital efficiency and empowerment; digital health as a pathway towards democra...
Digital health is rapidly entering clinical practice in cardiology. Estonia is one of the leading nations in implementing digital nationwide solutions. Recently, the European Society of Cardiology organized the 1st Summit on Digital Health in Tallinn, which provided the opportunity to discuss various aspects concerning the digitalization of cardiology.
Digital smoking cessation and alcohol reduction aids are widely available in England. To estimate their public health impact, researchers need to consider their adoption in the target population. We assessed adoption rates, and characteristics of adopters, of digital smoking cessation and alcohol reduction aids in England.
Digital technologies shape the way in which individuals and health systems interact to promote health and treat illness. Their propensity to exacerbate inequalities is increasingly being highlighted as a concern for public health. Personal, contextual and technological factors all interact and determine uptake and consequent use of digital technologies for health. This article reviews evidence on the impact of digital technologies on health equity. Health literacy is presented as a lens through which to app...
Cost-effectiveness is traditionally treated as a static estimate driven by clinical trial efficacy and drug price at launch. Prior studies suggest that cost-effectiveness varies over the drug's lifetime. We examined the impact of "learning by doing," one of the least studied drivers of changes in cost-effectiveness across the product life cycle. We combined time-series trends in effectiveness over time by cancer regimen using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results-Medicare database. We estimated th...
Cash prices for prescription drugs vary widely in the United States.
Women's health activists laid the groundwork for passage of the law that created the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1906. The pharmaceutical and food industries fought regulatory reforms then and continue to do so now. We examine public health activism in the Progressive Era, the postwar era and the present day. The women's health movement began in the 1960s, and criticized both the pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment. In the 1990s, patient advocacy groups began accepting industry fu...
Reducing childhood morbidity and mortality is challenging, particularly in countries with a shortage of qualified health care workers. Lack of trainers makes it difficult to provide the necessary continuing education in pediatrics for postregistration health professionals. Digital education, teaching and learning by means of digital technologies, has the potential to deliver medical education to a large audience while limiting the number of trainers needed.
An important issue in alcohol and drug use research is the degree to which study participants cooperate with survey interviewers and provide accurate information. We examine the year-by-year trends in the perceived cooperativeness of participants in a large national survey focused on alcohol and drug use in the United States between 2002 and 2015.
We introduce a new approach for a continuous loop tendon-graft preparation, benchmarking it against established graft preparation techniques widely used in conjunction with non-adjustable interference screw fixation. A four-strand bovine tendon graft was prepared using the following graft preparation techniques: standard graft using the baseball stitch technique (M-tech group); continuous loop graft using the GraftLink technique (Arthrex-tech group); continuous loop graft using the Kessler anastomosis techn...
AYA patients with cancer have a unique set of psychosocial and support needs to compared with w their younger and older counterparts. Digital health interventions overcome many of the barriers to AYA participation in behavioral health interventions. Due to the rapid shifts in digital health, it is important to continually assess the state of the field.
Digital health is transforming healthcare systems worldwide. It promises benefits for population health but might also lead to health inequities. From an ethical perspective, it is hence much needed to adopt a fair approach. This article aims at outlining chances and challenges from an ethical perspective, focusing especially on the dimension of justice-a value, which has been described as the core value for public health. Analysed through the lenses of a standard approach for health justice-Norman Daniels'...
Clinical implementation of digital health is a major hurdle to overcome in the coming years. Considering the role of the Journal of Medical Internet Research in the past 20 years and looking toward the journal's future, this viewpoint acknowledges the vision of medicine and the role that digital health plays in that vision. It also highlights barriers to implementation of digital health as an obstacle to achieving that vision. In particular, this paper focuses on how digital health research must start looki...
People spend considerable time on digital media, and are thus often exposed to expressions of emotion by other people. This exposure can lead their own emotion expressions becoming more similar to those of others, a process we refer to as 'digital emotion contagion'. This article reviews the growing literature on digital emotion contagion. After defining emotion contagion, we suggest that one unique feature of digital emotion contagion is that it is mediated by digital media platforms that are motivated to ...
Recent discussions about the increasing prices of prescription drugs have focused on pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), third-party intermediaries for various types of employers and government purchasers who negotiate drug prices in health plans and thus play a crucial role in determining the amount millions of Americans pay for medications. In this position paper, the American College of Physicians expands on its position paper from 2016 by offering additional recommendations to improve transparency in the ...
The impact of digitalization of health services has been profound and is expected to be even more profound in the future. It is important to evaluate whether digital health services contribute to health system goals in an optimal way. This should be done at the level of the service, not the 'digital transformation'. Decisions to adopt new digital health services, at different levels of the health care system, are ideally based on evidence regarding their performance in light of health system goals. In order...
