The health of health finances

NHS Evidence - health management - Wed, 05/08/2015 - 10:48

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) -
This paper looks at whether the Government have adequate plans to deal with the financial pressures on the health service. It reviews the evidence by looking at recent financial results and forecasts and the pressures they indicate, making comparisons with trends in spending levels and analysing the specific pressures likely in future years. Current plans are based on the NHS’s Five Year Forward View’s assessment that £30bn of pressures are faced over the five years to 2021, and that £8bn of that will be offset by additional funding. CIPFA concludes that the key figures of £30bn pressures and £22bn savings are both optimistic and makes  recommendations for how the Government can improve the realism of the plans, and what actions it should take to make any plan a more deliverable reality.

Incorporating life-cycle price modelling into pharmaceutical cost-effectiveness evaluations

NHS Evidence - health management - Tue, 04/08/2015 - 10:43

Office of Health Economics (OHE) - 
Why might the launch price of a new drug be a poor indicator of future expenditure for a drug? Which are the factors that determine the future prices and market shares of a drug? Understanding the answers to these questions can be crucial when conducting cost-effectiveness analyses i.e. when studying if it is desirable to publicly fund reimburse a new drug. This paper models and studies the price of a new drug along its life-cycle, from launch to discontinuation, to understand how the price of the drug evolves and to help inform cost-effectiveness evaluations.
