Texas Medical Association's curator insight, April 12, 2013 3:58 PM

Note this line -- also picked up by various bloggers today:

"It’s a surprising move for the White House in that it could make it a bit easier for states not to expand the Medicaid program. If they know the additional dollars are coming in, there’s a bit less worry about turning down the Medicaid expansion funds."

Bikes, Cities and Health: A Good Combination | safe, clean, affordable... | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

As rising incomes in developing countries lead to more cars, traffic congestion, and air and noise pollution, perhaps it is time to learn about the wisdom of promoting walking and cycling as part of urban development and transport infrastructure initiatives, as well as of health promotion and disease prevention programs.  Supporting pedestrian-and bike-friendly policies, programs, and investments in cities of developed and developing countries alike would not only reduce traffic congestion and pollution, but also improve the health of the population at different age groups.  These approaches would bring together different sectors and disciplines, involve local communities, and help improve access to services, jobs, and education for disadvantaged groups.  The net result would be a more pleasant and healthy life for all citizens.

Domhnall MacAuley: No easy prescription for physical activity

Domhnall MacAuley: No easy prescription for physical activity | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
April 6th was World Physical Activity Day—did you miss it? Probably good news. Best to keep doctors out of it. Let me explain: I believe passionately in the benefits of physical activity, have researched it, published, editorialised, practised, and promoted it at every opportunity. The benefits of physical activity are undisputed and physical activity is to be encouraged, supported and facilitated where ever possible. But I am not sure that doctors have a central role.

PatientView's latest PatientView Plus reports

In January 2013, PatientView published ‘The Corporate Reputation of Pharma—the Patient Perspective', based on the opinions of 600 patient groups worldwide. PatientView is now releasing four reports on the performance of major pharma companies in Germany, Italy, UK and USA.

Surprisingly, the corporate reputation of pharma, and the rankings of each of the pharma companies, varies significantly between the four countries.

In 2012, 40% of 600 respondent patient groups believed that the corporate reputation of pharma had declined worldwide. However, patient groups' attitude to pharma varies significantly across the four countries analysed.

Pharma in the USA stands out as worst among the four countries: 

63% of  respondent US patient groups believe that the corporate reputation of the pharma industry declined in 201240% of respondent UK patient groups believe that the corporate reputation of the pharma industry declined in 201237% of respondent Italian patient groups believe that the corporate reputation of the pharma industry declined in 201233% of respondent German  patient groups believe that the corporate reputation of the pharma industry declined in 2012

As it looks to me, those companies that rate best, will be the ones that show the most health care oriented behaviours, other than just "pill deliveries" . Pharma could best come forward in its maret position and it is revenues as it sees itself as a care for health partner.
