Report description

The US healthcare system ranks 37 among health care systems of about 200
worldwide countries ranked by World Health Organization. US health care
system is considered as one of the most expensive healthcare system in the
world, spending about 16% of its GDP on healthcare. However the rising
healthcare costs and increasing health premiums rates along with high number
of uninsured people (about 47 million i.e. 16% of the total population) are
among the significant factors contributing to the need of health reform in
the US. Health reform in the US is looked upon as an initiative towards
provision of qualitative and affordable health coverage for all Americans,
decrease in rising burden of healthcare costs and improvement in quality &
efficiency of health care. Obama has signed health reform in to law, recently
in March 2010, to improve the inefficiencies of the existing health care
structure. The health reform bill outlays several provisions such as
universal health coverage, cost containment, increase in insurance market
competition, excise tax on medical device manufacturers and lower drug costs
for Medicaid and Medicare are few to mention. Thus the provisions in the
health reform directly and indirectly impact the US healthcare/pharmaceutical
industry and its stakeholders.
