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.
