PDCI releases new issue of PDCI Market Access INSIGHTS, featuring research and opinion on the evolving state of private health insurance in Canada.
Volume 2, Issue 2
Our analytics article features work done by the PDCI team in the area of take-home cancer drugs (THCDs). The article shows that utilization by uninsured patients, or those paying copayments, is well under use by those with coverage. Important observations when planning PLA negotiations and patient assistance programs.
Our commentary article explores the future of private insurance in the Canadian health care system. John Robson gives an economist’s view into whether the private insurance industry is up to the challenge of a mixed public-private system – or indeed if some type of fully publicly-funded drug insurance plan is inevitable. It’s a provocative assessment and there is certainly a lot of food for thought about the direction of health care and who might play a role in shaping its future.
We sat down with oncologist Dr. Shaquil Hassan for a Q&A to give us a peek into how he and his team are working with oncology patients. He also explores how online pharmacy is changing the way they practice and the positive impacts on patient care of standardizing distribution and patient counselling.
