Works about lists of drugs or collections of recipes, formulas, and prescriptions for the compounding of medicinal preparations. Formularies differ from PHARMACOPOEIAS in that they are less complete, lacking full descriptions of the drugs, their formulations, analytic composition, chemical properties, etc. In hospitals, formularies list all drugs commonly stocked in the hospital pharmacy.
Formularies concerned with pharmaceuticals prescribed in hospitals.
An advisory group composed primarily of staff physicians and the pharmacist which serves as the communication link between the medical staff and the pharmacy department.
Insurance providing for payment of services rendered by the pharmacist. Services include the preparation and distribution of medical products.
The amount that a health care institution or organization pays for its drugs. It is one component of the final price that is charged to the consumer (FEES, PHARMACEUTICAL or PRESCRIPTION FEES).
Economic aspects of the fields of pharmacy and pharmacology as they apply to the development and study of medical economics in rational drug therapy and the impact of pharmaceuticals on the cost of medical care. Pharmaceutical economics also includes the economic considerations of the pharmaceutical care delivery system and in drug prescribing, particularly of cost-benefit values. (From J Res Pharm Econ 1989;1(1); PharmacoEcon 1992;1(1))
Health insurance plans intended to reduce unnecessary health care costs through a variety of mechanisms, including: economic incentives for physicians and patients to select less costly forms of care; programs for reviewing the medical necessity of specific services; increased beneficiary cost sharing; controls on inpatient admissions and lengths of stay; the establishment of cost-sharing incentives for outpatient surgery; selective contracting with health care providers; and the intensive management of high-cost health care cases. The programs may be provided in a variety of settings, such as HEALTH MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATIONS and PREFERRED PROVIDER ORGANIZATIONS.
Directions written for the obtaining and use of DRUGS.
The charge levied on the consumer for drugs or therapy prescribed under written order of a physician or other health professional.
Drugs whose drug name is not protected by a trademark. They may be manufactured by several companies.
Services providing pharmaceutic and therapeutic drug information and consultation.
Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
Provisions of an insurance policy that require the insured to pay some portion of covered expenses. Several forms of sharing are in use, e.g., deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments. Cost sharing does not refer to or include amounts paid in premiums for the coverage. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Total pharmaceutical services provided by qualified PHARMACISTS. In addition to the preparation and distribution of medical products, they may include consultative services provided to agencies and institutions which do not have a qualified pharmacist.
The utilization of drugs as reported in individual hospital studies, FDA studies, marketing, or consumption, etc. This includes drug stockpiling, and patient drug profiles.
Cost-sharing mechanisms that provide for payment by the insured of some portion of covered expenses. Deductibles are the amounts paid by the insured under a health insurance contract before benefits become payable; coinsurance is the provision under which the insured pays part of the medical bill, usually according to a fixed percentage, when benefits become payable.
Hospital department responsible for the receiving, storing, and distribution of pharmaceutical supplies.
The process by which decisions are made in an institution or other organization.
The containment, regulation, or restraint of costs. Costs are said to be contained when the value of resources committed to an activity is not considered excessive. This determination is frequently subjective and dependent upon the specific geographic area of the activity being measured. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
Reductions in all or any portion of the costs of providing goods or services. Savings may be incurred by the provider or the consumer.
Authoritative treatises on drugs and preparations, their description, formulation, analytic composition, physical constants, main chemical properties used in identification, standards for strength, purity, and dosage, chemical tests for determining identity and purity, etc. They are usually published under governmental jurisdiction (e.g., USP, the United States Pharmacopoeia; BP, British Pharmacopoeia; P.

Hospitals and managed care: catching up with the networks. (1/204)

Although the growth of managed care is having a significant impact on hospitals, organizational response to managed care remains fragmented. We conducted a survey of 83 hospitals nationwide that indicated that most hospitals now have at least one person devoted to managed care initiatives. These individuals, however, often spend most of their time on current issues, such as contracting with managed care organizations and physician relations. Concerns for the future, such as network development and marketing, although important, receive less immediate attention form these individuals. Hospital managed care executives must take a more proactive role in long range managed care planning by collaborating with managed care organizations and pharmaceutical companies.  (+info)

Essential drugs for ration kits in developing countries. (2/204)

Since the early 1980s drug ration kits have been used to improve the supply of essential drugs to rural health facilities in developing countries. This paper evaluates some of the experiences with kit systems in Angola, Bhutan, Democratic Yemen, Guinea-Conakry, Kenya, Mozambique, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia in relation to the selection of drugs for the kits and their quantities and cost. Data were collected through a review of published papers, annual reports and programme evaluations, by questionnaires among field staff and interviews with key experts. In comparing the 10 programmes, 21 drugs can be identified that are used in at least two-thirds of all kits. This list may be useful for evaluation and planning purposes. Six drugs (ORS, chloroquine and 4 antibiotics) usually account for over 60% of the cost of the kit. Careful monitoring of the price and quantities of these 6 drugs can therefore be very cost-effective. In the absence of reliable data on morbidity and drug needs in the initial phases of a kit system, the median drug quantities in kits from these 10 countries may serve as a starting point. Accumulating surpluses are sometimes perceived as a serious disadvantage of kit systems, ORS, benzylbenzoate solution and iron tablets are the three drugs that have most frequently accumulated. These drugs are relatively cheap and usually have a long shelf-life; in most programmes they have been successfully redistributed to other health facilities while the kit content was being adapted. The overall financial loss due to accumulation of surpluses is therefore limited. Most programmes have reached a stable kit content within two years.  (+info)

Managed care guidelines for the economic evaluation of pharmaceuticals. (3/204)

Foundation Health Corporation, through its National Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, requires all pharmaceutical manufacturers and others who wish products to be considered for formulary listing to meet evidentiary and analytical standards in their submission documentation. This article details the evidentiary and analytical standards required from those making submissions and describes the methodological basis of the guidelines. This is the first time, as far as the authors are aware, that a managed care health system in the United States has required formulary submissions not only to meet clinical and economic evaluation standards, but also to take explicit account of the perspective of the managed care group in applying these techniques. Submissions are required to take what is described as a systems impact perspective. This approach is quite different, in both evidentiary and analytical terms, from standards required by health systems in other countries and standards for the economic evaluation of pharmaceuticals proposed by expert groups in the United States.  (+info)

Incorporating quality of life data into managed care formulary decisions: a case study with salmeterol. (4/204)

Pharmacy and Therapeutics committees of managed care organizations have traditionally developed formularies by limiting the numbers and kinds of pharmaceuticals they purchase, with the goal of cutting costs. These attempts to manage pharmaceutical costs do not take into account the interrelationship of the costs of various components of care; thus, drug costs may decrease, but expenditures for utilization of other resources may increase. Cost-minimization and basic cost-effectiveness studies, on which many prior- authorization and formulary programs are based, only evaluate only the cost of the drug and its effectiveness. However, with the heightened competition in the healthcare market, emphasis is increasingly being laid on patient satisfaction and outcomes. Cost-utility analysis is a potentially superior pharmacoeconomic tool because it evaluate the effect of drug therapy on quality of life; however, data from such analyses are seldom readily available to the committees that evaluate a drug's potential effects on the entire healthcare system. The purpose of this review is to stress the importance of approaching formulary management from a wider perspective and to emphasize that the results of cost-utility studies should be proactively evaluated and incorporated into decisions regarding formularies. This is especially important for symptom-intensive diseases, such as asthma, in which the quality of life can be notably impaired. Cost-utility analyses should be conducted for all newer therapies, such as salmeterol, which are highly effective and which have a positive impact on quality of life, to determine the overall effect on the managed care plan's budget.  (+info)

Looking beyond the formulary budget in cost-benefit analysis. (5/204)

With the introduction of newer, more expensive psychotropic medications, healthcare providers and managed care administrators must consider whether these drugs offer "value for the money." A true picture of the benefits of these drugs emerges only when all the costs of treatment are considered. Focusing exclusively on the acquisition cost of the drug can result in a misleading impression of the drug's worth. Although the medication costs associated with treating a patient with a newer drug increase, use of these agents may actually result in an overall decrease in healthcare costs, through reductions in hospitalization and length of stay, use of mental health services, and prescriptions for adjunctive drugs. In one study of the newer antipsychotic agent risperidone, the overall annual costs of treating a patient with schizophrenia were reduced by nearly $8,000 (Canadian dollars), even though medication costs increased by approximately $1,200 (Canadian dollars). Retrospective and prospective pharmacoeconomic studies can provide valuable data on the cost effectiveness of treatment with newer psychotropic medications.  (+info)

Formulary limitations and the elderly: results from the Managed Care Outcomes Project. (6/204)

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether restrictive formularies are associated with differences in healthcare resource utilization, including number of office visits, prescriptions, and hospitalizations, and whether this association varies by age. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional, longitudinal study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients enrolled in one of six health maintenance organizations in six different states, three in the eastern and three in the western United States, were eligible for the study. Data from between 1309 and 3938 patients were available for analysis for each of the five diseases studied, for a total of 12,997 patients across all study diseases. Healthcare utilization by patients in the study included more than 99,000 office visits, 1000 hospitalizations, and 240,000 prescriptions. We used severity-adjusted prescription counts, prescription costs, office visit counts, and measures of inpatient hospital utilization to assess the effects of formulary limitations. RESULTS: We found positive, significant associations between the independent variable formulary limitations in drug class and the dependent variables measuring resource utilization. These associations were sometimes significantly greater for elderly patients after controlling for severity of illness and other variables. CONCLUSIONS: Common strategies for decreasing drug expenditures may be associated with higher severity-adjusted resource utilization. In specific areas, this association is more pronounced in the elderly.  (+info)

Atypical antipsychotics and formulary decisions. (7/204)

Although drug costs are a small fraction of the total direct costs of treating schizophrenia, managed care has focused on drug acquisition costs as an area of concern. There is pressure to demonstrate by outcome measures that the increased cost of the newer atypical antipsychotics versus traditional neuroleptics is justified. Decision makers want to be convinced that newer, more expensive treatment translates to value. Evidence accumulated to date suggests that the atypical agents are cost-effective. Studies show patients taking atypical antipsychotics have an improved quality of life, are more easily rehabilitated and reintegrated into the community, return to full- or part-time work more often, and prefer the newer agents to conventional antipsychotics. These benefits have been shown in studies of olanzapine versus haloperidol. Just as important, patients taking atypical antipsychotics show decreased medical care resource utilization, which results in cost savings.  (+info)

A formulary is a list of therapeutic products available to people with work-related injury and illness. We have developed formularies that are specifically related to types of work-related injuries and illnesses and thus, we do not have a general formulary. A person may have access to one or multiple WSIB formularies. If someones diagnosis does not easily fit one of the listed formularies, entitlement will be assigned on a case-by-case basis.
A lot can change over the span of just a couple months - changes that can have either a positive or negative impact on a brand.. Today, many brands are feeling the impact of a recent change in formulary status. Whether youre basking in the win of an improved position or trying to defend against competitive products that may have recently won a higher status, you cant afford not to get your message out there.. Geo-targeted mobile messaging-whether in the physicians office, the pharmacy, or even in a patients living room-is a proven way to promote your message in ways that drive awareness and growth. In fact, recent data suggests that adults who have seen pharma ads at the doctors office or pharmacy are 84% more likely to discuss the ad with their healthcare provider, and 68% more likely to ask their doctor to prescribe a specific product.. ...
Online guides to health plans or pharmacy benefit managers drug formularies for medications covered under Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage plans are becoming increasingly sophisticated - and are being held to an increasingly exacting regulatory standard by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is expanding its Web site guidelines to include searchable formularies. Here are 10 attributes such sites must now have to be considered in compliance:. 1. They must not discriminate against the disabled. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended in 1998, requires federal agencies to give disabled people access to electronic information that is comparable to the access given to others - for example, a blind person should be given access to a Web site that reads information aloud. CMS regulation now extends that requirement to Part D sponsors and their online marketing materials.. 2. They must include all formulary drugs. If a drug is listed on your formulary, it must ...

The standard economic model for health insurance posits that in order to account for moral hazard in a population for which there is varying marginal benefit of treatment that is unknown to the insurer, cost-sharing should be proportional to the price elasticity of demand. Yet, many have observed that when faced with cost-sharing, consumers may reduce utilization to suboptimal levels due to underestimation of the marginal benefit of treatment. Hence, optimal health insurance design requires consideration of both insurer and consumer information asymmetries regarding the marginal benefits of treatment. This dissertation investigates whether cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) may be useful for optimizing insurance in the face of insurer and consumer information asymmetries. In 2010, Premera Blue Cross, a large non-profit health plan in the Pacific Northwest implemented a value based formulary (VBF) benefit among their own employees and dependents that explicitly uses CEA to inform medication ...

From 1st April 2017, a revised NRT formulary will only allow the County Durham Stop Smoking Service to issue a single NRT product to each client rather than combination therapy.. However even providing one NRT product plus ongoing support from the Service will still double clients chances of quitting compared to no support.. Evidence shows that adding in a second NRT product can further increase the chances of quitting. Therefore the Service will advise that clients can purchase small packs of a second NRT product (such as chewing gum, lozenges which typically cost £5-£6 for a pack of 20) or choose to purchase an unlicensed nicotine containing product such as an e-cigarette.. GP practices should continue NOT to prescribe NRT or licensed e-cigarettes..

Incentive-based instruments use financial means, directly or indirectly, to motivate polluters to reduce the health and environmental risks posed by their facilities, processes, or products. These instruments typically provide monetary and near-monetary rewards for polluting less,and impose costs of various types for polluting more. According to economic theory and modeling exercises, incentive-based instruments such as pollution charges and tradable permits are more cost-effective than traditional forms of regulation. Incentive-based approaches also can address small sources of pollution such as households that are not easily controlled with traditional forms of regulation, as well as provide a reason for polluters to improve performance relative to existing regulatory requirements. Finally, incentive-based forms of regulation can provide a stimulus for technological change and innovation in pollution control.

As a practicing pharmacist, I see a lot of surprised faces when patients prescription drug charges are totaled. Many have sticker shock. Others are surprised by how affordable their medication is because they hear so much in the media about high drug costs and how senior citizens have to choose between food and medication. To get the best possible deal on medication, heres what I recommend:. Use the formulary. The formulary is a list of drugs-brand name and generic that are covered at the maximum level. The purpose of the formulary is to give members broad access to drugs and supplies at a reasonable overall cost. A committee of doctors and pharmacists determines what drugs are on the formulary. The committee considers safety, effectiveness, uniqueness and market factors. Your health plan may still provide some coverage for non-formulary drugs, but you will end up paying more out-of-pocket.. Use generics. Using a generic drug is the No. 1 thing you can do to reduce your prescription drug ...

That all may well be true, but how much shifting - or sharing, if you like - is too much? At what point does an increase in cost to consumers result in a deterioration of outcomes - the degree of deterioration that increases costs? Thats what everyone is trying to sort through, say some pharmacy directors.. Today, in an evolutionary process, health plans such as Humana and Cigna are developing drug tiers that attempt to take more than cost into consideration. We dont even use the term formulary because the word connotes a closed, restricted system, says William Fleming, PharmD, vice president for pharmacy and clinical integration at Humana, which spends $1.6 billion a year on drugs. Humanas tiers are based on demonstrated value relative to cost, says Fleming, not by Food and Drug Administration therapeutic categories alone or whether the drug is generic or branded.. In the companys Rx4 benefit, the lowest-cost drugs are those that demonstrate medical offset value, relative to cost, within ...

Plasma (from Ancient Greek πλάσμα​, meaning 'moldable substance'[1]) is one of the four fundamental states of matter, and was first described by chemist Irving Langmuir[2] in the 1920s.[3] Plasma can be artificially generated by heating or subjecting a neutral gas to a strong electromagnetic field to the point where an ionized gaseous substance becomes increasingly electrically conductive, and long-range electromagnetic fields dominate the behaviour of the matter.[4] Plasma and ionized gases have properties and display behaviours unlike those of the other states, and the transition between them is mostly a matter of nomenclature[2] and subject to interpretation.[5] Based on the surrounding environmental temperature and density, partially ionized or fully ionized forms of plasma may be produced. Neon signs and lightning are examples of partially ionized plasma.[6] The Earth's ionosphere is a plasma and the magnetosphere contains plasma in the Earth's surrounding space environment. The ...
