The Healthcare Debate

Posted by: Michelle Lockett on August 14, 2009

From town hall meetings with angry protesters to Capitol Hill gossip, Obama’s Healthcare Reform plans are consuming the media coverage of late. Business Exchange can help you organize the latest news and information from across the Web.

Some of the key issues at hand are Health Insurance Availability, Small Business Healthcare and Drug Prices — and they just happen to be BX topics. In addition, the U.S. Healthcare System and Health Insurance Reform topics provide an overview of both sides of the discussion.

Amid the debate, though seemingly silent at this point, are uncertainties about Health Information Technology. Privacy concerns abound around the possibility of completely Electronic Health Records and what some have dubbed Health 2.0, which includes the use of the latest social media technologies to communicate with patients.

The Pharmaceutical Companies also have a seat center stage in the discussion, beyond just pricing. Pharmaceutical Marketing — direct to consumer and perks given to the doctors — is creating a stir. And others are looking at the Pharmaceutical Industry as a whole and taking stabs at Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Pharmaceutical Approvals.
