In our last health care reform update, we examined the new administration’s seven campaign planks and the expectations for each in 2017. We also discussed general reform trends, and it was clear that things were in flux! This webinar will provide current updates relative to those planks, focusing on the repeal/replace discussion and timing thereof. This is intended to provide high level expected impacts related to commercial and clinical research for the pharmaceutical, medical device, and insurance markets.
President Elect Trump has made seven points of expected reform once he takes office (donaldjtrump.com/positions/healthcare-reform). These are summarized as: 1) repeal the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare,” 2) allow cross-state health insurance sales, 3) allow full tax deductions for health insurance premiums, 4) broaden Health Savings Account (HSA) permissibility and protections, 5) require health service provider price transparency, 6) block-grant Medicaid to states, and 7) remove barriers to pharmaceutical market entrants. This webinar will review these seven points, with a particular focus on numbers 1, 5 and 7, and provide high level expected market research impact for the pharmaceutical, medical device and insurance markets.
Join us for this special edition healthcare reform update where we will focus on the Presidential election and how both candidate’s view on healthcare reform could impact patients, payers, providers, and the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. We will also explore specific implications for market researchers related to these changes.
Join us for this quarterly update where we discuss the ever changing US healthcare delivery and reimbursement system. We will examine issues impacting providers, patients, payers and health systems. We will report on the migration from fee for service to value based payment mechanisms and progress toward developing population health and coordinated care delivery models.
The use of non-physician providers is likely to continue to expand and play an increasingly critical role in the US healthcare delivery system which is focused on improving access, improving patient satisfaction and reducing overall costs. In this webinar, we will focus on physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) and their roles within primary care, specialty care, hospitals and post-acute care settings. We will highlight implications for conducting research among PAs and NPs.
In light of the changes in healthcare reform, healthcare systems and providers are being ever more conscious of managing patient flow in efforts to improve efficiency and their bottom line. It is increasingly important for pharmaceutical and device manufacturers to understand patient flow in order to identify opportunities for improvement that can be addressed by new technologies and pharmacotherapeutics. One approach to understanding these complex systems is through job mapping to fully elucidate the process and identify where gaps and unmet needs exist. In this webinar, we will describe our approach to this research including advantages, drawbacks and analytic techniques used to identify the highest opportunities. A case study will be used to demonstrate this research methodology.
