Understanding Drug Pricing, Policy and Utilization 6-hour course
Understanding Drug Pricing, Policy, and Utilization is a 6-hour course that examines the complexities of the U.S. healthcare market. Many believe patient access to medications and pricing are solely determined by the drug companies; however, this is far too simplistic. This course provides a comprehensive look at how competing forces including the federal government, the insurance industry, and healthcare providers influence formulary systems, which in turn determines how patients access, use, and pay for medications. Learn how commercial and government databases housing pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomic information also drive drug policy and pricing. Perform basic cost-effectiveness and quality of life calculations to help you gain an appreciation for the types of decisions faced by various persons on the drug development team. Created and taught by a healthcare economist and social scientist, this engaging course is a must for anyone new to healthcare policy and pricing.
