4. US DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT: "Medicare Part D Plan Sponsor Electronic Prescribing Initiatives," (OEI-05-08-00322, October 2009, .pdf format, 11p.).

Summary:

We found that plan sponsors have launched voluntary electronic prescribing (e-prescribing) initiatives to increase prescriber adoption of e-prescribing. At the time of our data collection in September 2008, approximately 20 percent of plan sponsors reported that they had an initiative and another 18 percent reported that they were planning an initiative. Initiatives include at least one of the following: free or discounted software, hardware, training, Internet connectivity, or financial incentives. Over half of plan sponsors with an initiative reported average or high prescriber participation levels for their initiatives.

Finally, 75 percent of plan sponsors with an initiative could not report a quantifiable benefit because they did not measure outcomes for their initiative. The remaining 25 percent of plan sponsors with an initiative reported that they measured for and saw a quantifiable benefit. These plan sponsors most commonly reported that their initiative resulted in an increase in generic substitutions and an increase in formulary compliance.

30. VIENNA INSTITUTE OF DEMOGRAPHY: "Population Ageing and Endogenous Economic Growth," by Klaus Prettner (Working Paper 8/2009, 2009, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

This article investigates the consequences of population ageing for long run economic growth perspectives. We introduce population ageing into a generalized model of endogenous technological change incorporating the model of Romer (1990) and Jones (1995) as special cases. We find that increases in longevity have positive effects on steady state per capita output growth in endogenous as well as in semiendogenous growth models. In the latter case, the positive dependence can also be shown for the equilibrium growth rate during transition to the steady state.
