Icahn School of Medicine @Mt. Sinai—PANEL DISCUSSION: Prescription For Value—Keeping Innovation Affordable For Patients

Harvard Club 35 W 44th St, New York, NY, United States

Prescription-drug prices continue to seize headlines this election season. Recent drug-pricing scandals—involving EpiPen and Daraprim, older medicines used to treat asthma and malaria, respectively, as well as high list prices for new medicines to counter hepatitis C and cholesterol—seem to offer ammunition to critics who charge that drug manufacturers prioritize profits over patients.

But how are drug prices in the U.S. actually determined? Are the forces of competition being fully harnessed to yield positive results for patients? And how is high-deductible insurance, accelerating fast under Obamacare, affecting access to critical medicines?

Please join Manhattan Institute for a health-care symposium, as distinguished experts discuss the forces driving drug pricing in America—and explore promising new approaches for making medicines more affordable for patients.

Icahn School of Medicine @ Mt. Sinai—LECTURE: Physician Burnout and the Physician-Patient Relationship, Beth Haynes, MD

Icahn School of Medicine, Annenberg Bldg. 12th floor 1468 Madison Ave, New York, NY, United States

All are welcome to attend this lunch lecture. Food will be provided to those who RSVP within 48 hours of the event.

Physician burnout and physician suicide are epidemic. In this lecture we will look at various contributing factors and what can be done.

BRI Haynes Beth Executive DirectorDr. Beth Haynes, medical director of the Benjamin Rush Institute, will be meeting with students of the Stony Brook Medical School campus during lunch to discuss the topic of physician burnout and how it affects the patient-doctor relationship.

POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Dr. Haynes provided a very nice overview of physician burnout, recent trends in physician burnout epidemiology, and some of the root causes of burnout. The continued intrusion of government, insurance companies, EMRs and other third parties have eroded the physician-patient relationship. Not only does this negatively impact our patients, but it also exacts a toll on physicians.

Beth then transitioned to summarizing some of the research into the neurobiology of human relationships, and how these insights help us understand burnout. To activate neurohormonal axes in the brain, humans need meaningful social contact, including eye contact, emotional connection, and physical contact. These basic elements that underly the neurobiology of the physician-patient relationship are lacking in today's overburdened and regulated practice settings.

Notably, direct primary care doctors claim that their practices are more fulfilling and inspire them because these physicians can practice medicine the way it should be, and form meaningful bonds with their patients.
