US medical marketing reaches $30 billion, drug ads top surge

US medical marketing reaches $30 billion, drug ads top surge | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
Ads for prescription drugs appeared 5 million times in just one year, capping a recent surge in U.S. medical marketing, a new analysis found. The advertisements for various medicines showed up on TV, newspapers, online sites and elsewhere in 2016. Their numbers soared over 20 years as part of broad health industry efforts to promote drugs, devices, lab tests and even hospitals. The researchers estimated that medical marketing reached $30 billion in 2016, up from $18 billion in 1997. Spending on consumer-focused ads climbed fastest. But marketing to doctors and other health professionals still grabbed the biggest share with the bulk of it paying for free drug samples.

Doctors made cars safer; guns are next [Opinion] | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
I was standing in the middle of one of the nation’s busiest Level I trauma centers when my phone exploded with a flurry of text messages. The NRA’s controversial tweet declaring that doctors “stay in their lane” was ricocheting across the internet, leaving my emergency medicine and trauma colleagues around the country flabbergasted. Who better to talk about the destruction than those tasked with piecing the victims back together? I was introduced to the tragedy of gun violence in the late ’90s as an emergency medicine intern on the South Side of Chicago. Now in Houston two decades later, I have treated so many victims that I long ago lost count.
