IPO Stocks

I have created a live stock ticker on the MRVertex home page (left column) that tracks pricing for all 2014 Healthcare IPOs (companies priced through August). I am working on ways to show performance gains since launch; I have that info and just need to embed it in the front page code. I’ll also be updating the companies in the next few days to include any launches in September.

I guess we’ve come a ways since Edison banged out one of these in a few days back in 1870…

Hospitals to reap $6 billion – 2014 ACA

The NYT reports today that hospitals will reap $6 billion in previously uncompensated care.

The AHA reports that 2013 uncompensated care amounted to $45.9 billion, or 6.1% of total billings. So the revenue gained is 13% of uncompensated care, but that’s only about 1% of total hospital billings… It’s a beginning.

Cutting the pie

I’ve been doing segmentation work for a long time. In fact, there are a couple of research companies out there selling my methodology, who don’t really know how to apply it. Not to brag, but let’s be honest.  Call me to learn more: 973-967-0032

Interesting opinion piece that was forwarded to me by a pricing expert. How should the industry price healthcare solutions? The one question I have – even if R&D is sunk cost, you’ve still got to recover it for your investors and shareholders. If you can’t sell  your portfolio of drugs at prices that recover total R&D, then maybe it’s time to reassess your pricing strategy.
