A recent article from Frost & Sullivan’s Visionary Healthcare Growth Partnership Service program looks at the possibilities unfolding over the next 100 days for the healthcare industry. Repeal, Replace, or Rebrand? maintains that "translating [Trump's] bold campaign trail claims of 'repeal and replace' into legislative action can often be challenging with any established bill, let alone one as complex as the Affordable Care Act (ACA). As the ACA is built on a number of interlocking provisions and funding mechanisms, any unilateral actions proposed by the new administration must carefully take into consideration any potential secondary repercussions". Visionary Healthcare industry analyst Kamaljit Behera comments: "Initially, rather than outright repeal, the Trump administration and Congress could simply defund certain aspects of the bill, as well as chose to not enforce certain punitive aspects of the bill."

Article | April 17, 2020

Swiss pharma giant Roche is joining the race to develop a test for COVID-19 antibodies in people who have been exposed to the disease. This morning, Roche announced the development and upcoming launch of its Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 serology test to detect antibodies in people who have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Roche is eying May for the launch of the test in Europe and is in talks with the U.S Food and Drug Administration for emergency approval of the system. Antibody testing is central to help identify people who have been infected by the virus, especially those who may have been infected but did not display symptoms, the company said. Roche noted that as more information becomes available about immunity levels to COVID-19, society can return to a sense of normal much more quickly. Roche’s test will join a number of other antibody tests that have recently come on the market. Earlier this month the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first blood test for COVID-19 antibodies.

Article | April 17, 2020

Painkillers like Oxycontin, Percocet, and Vicodin, have been prescribed by primary physicians, surgeons, dentists, and other healthcare providers to patients suffering from varying levels of pain.

While there are a number of factors that play into this opioid epidemic, educating doctors and patients on alternative solutions to managing chronic pain is a great place to start combatting this nationwide crisis.

Every member of the health care team shares a common goal of optimizing patient outcomes. Yet each specialty and position of the healthcare team has a unique workflow facilitated by various tools, from an operative report to a progress note. In this regard the pharmacist plays a pivotal function in medication management and requires documentation specific to that role. The Pharmacist eCare Plan (PeCP) allows for an interoperable note to be used in the pharmacy to assist in the exchange of patient information, including active medication list, laboratory results, and payer information.
