Comparative Effectiveness

When I was at the gym the other day, I picked up a copy of Business Week and turned to a fascinating article that they had on Obama's Healthcare Reform Bill...the full article can be found here.

As the article points out, one of the main problems that the U.S. healthcare system faces is its over-reliance on expensive drugs and treatment, when many times a cheaper alternative exists. I applaud Obama and his effort to decrease the overall cost of healthcare by doing research into drugs that are cheaper yet just as effective in treating a sickness. I just hope that the "research" phase of it actually is implemented.
