America’s got a fever. And the only prescription? More cowbell—and fair drug pricing.
To that end, ICER announced the launch of a new podcast series entitled “A Prescription for Fair Drug Pricing.” In this series ICER’s President Dr. Steve Pearson sits with neurologist Dr. Jason Crowell as they try to better understand and unpack the financial and ethical tensions underpinning the US healthcare system. They will tackle the issues of why prescription medications are so expensive in the US, the hard choices patients are forced to make when they cannot afford drugs, and how other countries make data-driven decisions on drug efficacy and pricing. This podcast is a must-listen for healthcare providers interested not only in the health but also financial side effects of prescription drugs. Find out more here.
