SANDOZ HACK ENTRY - GeneRx: "Going Generics, Made Easy." - Alacapa, Jason [Philippines]
THE HEALTHCARE ACCESS PROBLEM: In developed countries, once the patent of an innovator drug expires, 90% of consumers shift to generics but in developing countries like the Philippines, the opposite is observed – 90% patients remain loyal with branded drugs! Worse, most affected Filipinos are those from the poorest quintile (~20 Million). More than 65% of their out-of-pocket expenses were medicine purchases (2014). In a survey of 1160 Filipinos (2014), 47% were faithful to branded prescription and the remaining did not know that they could ask for the prices of the generic alternative. As a consequence, many of them suffer complications and die. In fact, 3 of 30 customers are able to sustain maintenance drugs for a year due to high cost. Why does the problem exist? Filipinos lack knowledge on generics (~50%), believe that generics are inferior (49%) and pharmaceutical companies focus on strong marketing efforts to physicians who are key influencers of purchase. As long as doctors continue to prescribe branded drugs only without writing generic alternatives, more Filipinos would suffer complications and even die. If only they have access to the right information then thousands of lives could be saved! THE PROPOSED M-HEALTH SOLUTION: GeneRx (pronounced as Gé-né-ríx) is the “google” and “ebay” for generic drugs in the Philippines as it offers the value proposition of “going generics, made easy.” GeneRx solves the pain points of buying expensive branded drugs and inadequate information on alternatives. “Going generics” is “made easy” by making information accessible at the patients’ fingertips. After downloading the free mobile app, users can just enter the brand name of prescribed drugs and GeneRx will revert with information about generic alternatives, equivalent doses, manufacturer, price, and availability in local drug stores. If the brand name is a combination of two drugs and combination generics is not available, GeneRx will give users generic alternatives of separate drugs with equivalent dosing recommendation. For example, if a prescription reads “Exforge 5/80mg,” a market leader anti-hypertension drugs by Novartis, GeneRx will revert with its generic equivalents such as combination “Amlodipine/Valsartan 5/80mg” or separate “Amlodipine 5mg” and “Valsartan 80mg” depending on local market availability. To increase user engagement and trust for generics, additional information about the drug (mode of action and side effects) and ratings (submitted by healthcare professionals and previous users) shall be posted. Results can be sorted according to price, nearby location, and ratings. Users can even opt to order online and have these medications delivered right at comfort of their own houses! Based from our validation, 94% will try the app and all 13 indigent patients interviewed expressed strong interest! GEOGRAPHICAL FOCUS: To ensure success of the project, it will be employed in phases with each phase building on the learnings of the previous one as the it is scaled up. Through this strategy, each level shall be self-correcting (mistakes are discovered early and corrected) and inspirational (feedbacks from smaller lead users inspire one change after the other) until the prototype is optimized before it reaches nationwide roll-out. The phases will cover the following areas: -First Phase: Metro Manila (National Capital Region), Philippines -Second Phase: Highly Urbanized Cities in the Philippines -Third Phase: The Whole Philippines - - - - - I am Jason V. Alacapa from the Philippines. With my technical expertise as a medical doctor and social entrepreneurial mindset as an MBA, help me turn this vision a reality. Now with GeneRx, 20 million poor Filipinos shall be empowered to take actions for their own health at touch of their fingertips – indeed, going generics, made easy.

The Real Deal: Generic drug prices
ALBANY -- If you take generic medications, you've likely noticed you're paying more for some of them. Certain drugs have quadrupled in price over the last year. Patients and pharmacists are furious and now lawmakers are looking to do something about it. "Last month, I had to order like 6 different prescriptions and it came to quite a bit," says Arlene Laboy of Sloansville. She recently received a warning from her pharmacist that she was not expecting, "they have told me that some of my medications are going to be increased," she says. Laboy, like millions of others, relies on a number of generic drugs to stay healthy and she's paying a lot more for a few of the same pills she's been taking for years. "It's a sporadic issue, it may be a handful of medications, maybe 15-20 at a time but what is incredible is the percentage of increase in price, something that could be 8 cents is now 9 dollars a pill," says John McDonald, owner of Marra's Pharmacy in Cohoes. A few examples, the price of Doxycycline, an antibiotic used to treat infections went from $20 for a 100-pill bottle in October of 2013 to nearly $2,000 a year later, Albuterol Sulfate, a common asthma treatment shot from $11 per bottle to $434. "There are different reasons, sometimes valid reasons‚there may be a raw material shortage, an FDA inspection may close down a few facilities usually in a foreign country and then there are times there are no valid excuses, we don't get a valid reason," McDonald says. Even if you're not taking any of the impacted medications, you're still paying for them, "we spend 15 cents of every premium dollar just on paying for drugs," says Paul Macielak, the President of the New York State Health Plan Association which represents insurers. And at the moment, he says, there is little oversight on how those prices are set, "pharmaceuticals today is the most profitable sector in healthcare, I mean I think the running profit is around 20%, overall that's more than five times what health plans and hospitals earn in terms of any kind of a margin, so that's something I think warrants somebody looking at," he says. Hearings are being held both on Capitol Hill and in Albany to discuss what can be done to increase transparency of generic drug pricing. "For the most part, generics are very cost effective options, the problem is though when you have these roller coaster episodes, it really wreaks havoc in the market," McDonald says. The Generic Pharmaceutical Association says while there have been some price spikes, they do not reflect the broader U.S. market, which includes 12,000 generic medications. Either way, for Laboy who is on a fixed income, these ups and downs are causing some serious budget issues.

CCHR Video: Making a Killing (Sairasta rahaa) 1/4 Subtitled english/finnish
YK on huolissaan masennuksesta, itsemurhista ja lasten huumaamisesta Psykostimulanteilla Suomessa Tämän huolen taustalla on tieto, että Ritalinin ja Concertan kaltaisten psykostimulanttilääkkeiden käyttö ADHD:n ja ADD:n hoidossa on lisääntynyt yli 100-kertaiseksi vuodesta 1999 vuoteen 2010 huolimatta varoituksista, joita jo 2005 annettiin Suomen hallitukselle. Sen sijaan että terveysviranomaiset olisivat käsitelleet tilanteen sen vaatimalla huolella ja antaneet lapsille laajan valikoiman kunnollisia vaihtoehtoja joilla käsitellä lasten yksilölliset tarpeet, he ovat sallineet määrättyjen lääkkeiden määrän kasvavan. Viranomaiset vakuuttavat, että lääkkeet eivät ole ainut hoitokeino, joten useimmalle lapselle ei olisi koskaan pitänyt määrätä lääkkeitä. Psykostimulanttien lisääntyminen on voimakkaampaa lasten ja nuorten keskuudessa kuin muilla väestön ryhmillä, ja lapset ja nuoret käyttävät 70,9 % lääkkeistä.
