NICE CEO announces new approach to prioritization

The British drug pricing agency NICE is working on new guidelines for how to evaluate new products in a socioeconomic context. But it comes with the risk of an increase in healthcare inequality, the agency’s CEO warns in an interview with Medwatch.

Or should they take secondary effects, such as the number of days a patient does not have to spend in a costly hospital bed, into consideration as well? Or the value a depressive individual could give back to society, if the proper medicine gets that person off of government benefits?

The life science industry has been a long time advocate of the world’s healthcare bodies adapting a more holistic outlook on healthcare expenditure, and public bodies are beginning to take notice and adopt this type of thinking.
