The Changing economics of medical technology by Annetine Gelijns( )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume summarizes the second in a series of Institute of Medicine workshops whose intent is to examine critically the process by which biomedical research is translated into actual benefits in medical practice. The cost of research and development (R & D) - particularly for the regulated medical technologies such as pharmaceuticals and devices - has escalated dramatically over the past two decades. Significant factors associated with higher R & D costs include the shift in research emphasis toward more complex chronic conditions and, more importantly, demands for more extensive demonstration of safety, efficacy, and cost- effectiveness. Simultaneously, the economic returns to the innovator have become increasingly constrained by a host of policies intended to contain health care expenditures. In view of these trends, the Commitee on Technological Innovation in Medicine chose to devote its second workshop to an examination of the economics of medical innovation, drawing on experience in the United States, Europe, and Japan. One of the important conclusions is that the need is clear for additional research on the economics of innovation in medicine

Recognition and initial assessment of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias by United States( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dementia in the adult U.S. population is a devastating disorder that is often unrecognized or misdiagnosed in its early stages. Despite the current lack of unequivocally effective treatment, recognition of early-stage dementia may offer substantial benefits. These include avoidance of inappropriate treatment related to misdiagnosis and time for the patient and family to address issues of financial, legal, and medical care planning. This Clinical Practice Guideline is intended to help primary care providers recognize and assess Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in the early stages. Differential diagnosis is beyond the scope of the guideline; however, the guidline contains a list of resources for further clinical evaluation once probable dementia has been identified
