AHCA & BCRA Bills: Complete Texts of American Health Care Act and the Better Care Reconciliation Act

Consider reading the full health care bill and letting your Senator know you’re an informed citizen. That’s why I was motivated to publish and share the full text of The American Health Care Act and now, a second edition updated with the Better Care Reconciliation Act. How Congress will resolve their differences, and how quickly, is unclear. But one things IS clear: the patients can’t wait – nor can the doctors, the hospitals, the insurers, and all of us as stakeholders in health care.

The corporate and scholarly research worlds could learn much from each other: “An Academia-Big Pharma Truce”

from Dr. Marc Siegel, a professor of medicine and medical director of Doctor Radio at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, writing in the Wall Street Journal today.   Most Americans are unaware how many great scientists, trained in academia, now work in private pharmaceutical laboratories. A 2010 paper in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Reviews Drug Discovery confirmed that the vast majority of pharmaceuticals now in use were discovered in drug-company labs, where a process known as high-throughput screening allows computer analysis of thousands of compounds to determine those with the best activity against certain diseases. Big Pharma pioneered this […]

Medical Care Means Mental Health, Too

“Patients with depression, anxiety and more also often have chronic physical illnesses, and failing to integrate psychological treatment is costly,” writes Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a vice provost of the University of Pennsylvania and the chairman of its Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, in the Wall Street Journal. His new book is “Prescription for the Future,” just published by PublicAffairs. He has spoken at Advocate Health Care and is a venture partner at a firm that invests in Quartet.   American society has historically segregated mental-health conditions from other health concerns. Doctors and laypeople alike often dismissed such […]
