Perhaps it was inevitable. Kaiser Permanente, the California-based health system that integrates health insurance with its own hospitals and clinics, last month announced that it would open its own medical school in the state in 2019. 

The move underscores two factors that have bedeviled healthcare reform in the United States before and after the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010 – a forecasted shortage of physicians in the United States, and the failure of traditional medical education to keep pace with the training required to enable physicians to provide healthcare in an integrated, risk-based system.

New Video! Companion Diagnostics

Posted by Fuld + Company on Dec 11, 2015 8:00:00 AM

Companion diagnostic (CDx) devices are in vitro and imaging tools that are paired with specific drug therapies. Part of a larger trend towards personalized medicine, they are used to identify patients most likely to benefit from a specific therapeutic agent or to determine appropriate dosage. 

While questions remain about who should bear the cost for companion diagnostics, the promise of greater safety and efficacy and the potential for faster regulatory approval have made this an area of growth for both pharmaceutical and molecular diagnostics clients.

David Staknis, Principal, Practice Head Global Life Sciences, and Ken Sawka, CEO + President, discuss increased requests for monitoring development and expansion of CDx platforms, earlier coordination by pharmaceutical and diagnostics firms, and the benefits of CI for optimizing R&D spending.
