Precision Health Economics is proud to announce that Scientific Advisor Anupam Jena, MD has been named by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the 60 most powerful people in healthcare in 2016, joining other influential leaders such as Robert Califf, Frances Collins, David Feinberg, Bill & Melinda Gates, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump. Included in their annual list, Dr. Jena was recognized in part for his study published this year in JAMA that found female physicians at some of the nation’s most prominent public medical schools earn nearly $20,000 less a year on average than their male colleagues.
Congratulations, Dr. Jena!

By: Jason Shafrin, PhD Sr. Director, Policy and Economics and Jacki Chou, MPL Senior Director, Policy and Economics The recent announcement that CVS Caremark will use value-based metrics to inform formulary design at first appears a step in the right direction. However, using value measurements from a single nongovernmental organization—the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER)—based on a limited picture of treatment value may be problematic. Using this single assessment of value in an effort solely to exclude drugs from a major insurance formulary is even more worrisome and fails to recognize the heterogeneity in patient clinical needs and preferences.
