An article published online today in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), suggests that pharmaceutical companies use several strategies to keep affordable generic drugs from the market, illustrating an emerging trend that authors say is becoming as harmful to consumers as high-cost brand-name drugs.
New research published online today in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), is the first to demonstrate that women on blood thinners can take estrogen-containing contraception or hormone replacement therapy without an increased risk of blood clots or uterine bleeding.
Today Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2015, its fiscal year (FY) 2016 spending bill which includes the largest funding increase for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 12 years. The American Society of Hematology (ASH), the world’s largest professional society concerned with the causes and treatment of blood disorders, applauds this bipartisan action to increase vital biomedical research funding and avoid a government shutdown.
To celebrate the recent achievements in both hematology and in Blood, the Journal of the American Society of Hematology, Blood Editor-in-Chief Bob Löwenberg, MD, PhD, and Deputy Editor Nancy Berliner, MD, have selected the top 10 most outstanding manuscripts of 2015.
A second look at
the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). ASH previously examined the new Merit-Based
Incentive Payment System and what it means for hematologists. MACRA also offers an alternative path for
physicians to participate in “alternative payment models”. ASH explores what models might qualify as
“alternative” and how hematologists may be able to participate.
The 2015 ASH Quality Symposium and the 2015 ASH Practice Partnership lunch addressed two sides of the issue of how hematologists can demonstrate their value and get paid for providing it.
The ASH Delegation has returned from the interim meeting of the American Medical Meeting House of Delegates. Working with the AMA has enabled ASH to influence many policies and special access to influential advisory groups.
In April, 2015, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization (MACRA) was signed into law. The headline at the time of passage was the end of the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula that had for so many years mandated large annual Medicare payment cuts to physicians. MACRA did not just affect the overall payment mechanism – it also created a new pay for performance system for physicians. Many of these elements are similar or identical to the existing pay-for-performance program in Medicare but we will highlight some of the differences.
