Building an Inclusive Definition of E-Learning: Like society, the concept of e-learning is subject to constant change. In addition, it is difficult to come up with a single definition of e-learning that would be accepted by the majority of the scientific community. The different understandings of e-learning are conditioned by particular professional approaches and interests.
Patients, policymakers and the public deserve the facts, and the fact is the trend for prescription drug costs is heading in the right direction.
Biopharmaceutical innovation and the new cures and treatments it delivers saves lives and saves money within our health care system. If you follow the pill from the manufacturer to the pharmacy counter you learn that drugmakers set the list price for medicines, while insurance companies largely determine how much patients pay at the pharmacy counter.
Just this week, one insurance company announced it will finally pass along to some consumers the substantial rebates it receives from drugmakers. Press reports highlight time and again stories of insurance companies that refuse to cover the cost of medications. Insurers have also been known to discriminate against patients with costly pre-existing conditions.
To control health care costs, we should look for ways to keep patients out of the hospital and reduce the need for costly medical procedures. Even though the trend on prescription drug spending is promising, we must continue our efforts to provide patients access to the medicines they need at a cost they can afford.
Unfortunately, many of the so-called solutions being discussed are fatally flawed and would lead to a host of harmful consequences, such as weaker safety protectionsrestricted access to medicines and less innovation.
Fortunately, there are responsible steps policymakers can take. The Council for Affordable Health Coverage has offered an approach that reflects consensus across the health care industry and it includes a number of commonsense solutions, such as accelerating the approval of generic drugs, empowering patients and expanding the use of value-based pricing agreements.Albert Sangrà, Dimitrios Vlachopoulos, and Nati Cabrera Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Spain.
