“Drugs are tested by the people who manufacture them, in poorly designed trials, on hopelessly small numbers of weird, unrepresentative patients, and analysed using techniques that are flawed by design, in such a way that they exaggerate the benefits of treatments.”
Goldacre tells us about withheld data, explains how drugs are conceived and developed, examines bad regulators, bad trials and the mammoth issue of marketing. It’s an incredible eye-opener and important to everyone in the industry who pays for large amounts of drugs for carriers, groups and claimants.
You’ll be hearing more about this from me, but for now, know that OMCA can help you through the haze and maze of excessive pharmaceutical use. Our nurses and physicians are uniquely equipped to reduce the amount of narcotics your claimants are using and impact your overall drug bill in a meaningful way.
