The U.S. Healthcare Cost Crisis
by WestHealth and Gallup
Americans are borrowing tens of billions of dollars, skipping treatments and significantly cutting back on household spending to pay for basic healthcare, yet a wide partisan divide exists over their satisfaction with the current U.S. healthcare system and the quality of care it provides. These findings and more are based on a new survey conducted by nonprofit, nonpartisan organization West Health and Gallup, the global analytics and advice firm.
The report is based on a nationally representative survey of more than 3,500 American adults on the impact of the high cost of healthcare on personal finances, individual healthcare choices and the level of satisfaction with the U.S. healthcare system.
Integrating Clinical and Mental Health: Challenges and Opportunities
by Bipartisan Policy Center
Nearly 45 million American adults suffered from some form of mental illness in 2016. Although there is little change in the estimates of those with mental illness over the last few years, rates of death due to drugs, alcohol, and suicide are increasing. In 2016, about 45,000 Americans age 10 and over died by suicide.5 Twenty-five states experienced at least a 30 percent increase in suicide rates between 2014 and 2016.
The national opioid crisis has resulted in significant attention to federal policy associated with substance use disorder (SUD). Mental illness along with SUD comprise a broad category of illness commonly referred to as “behavioral health.” In 2016, 44.7 million American adults experienced a mental illness, 20.1 million experienced a SUD, and 8.2 million experienced both—and these numbers are likely underestimated due to lack of identification and issues of stigma. Collectively, more than 1 million people have died from drugs, alcohol, and suicide over the past decade. If these trends continue, the death rate could grow to claim 2 million more lives by 2025.
To the extent possible, the focus of this report will be mental illness. However, where research cited in the report does not distinguish between SUD and mental illness, the Bipartisan Policy Center uses the term used in the research literature. BPC leaders and staff recognize the relationship between the two diseases, including the millions of Americans who suffer from both.
Healthcare Marketers Trend Report 2019
by MM&M and Deloitte
If you’re looking at the results of the 2019 MM&M/Deloitte Consulting Healthcare Marketers Trend Report in a vacuum, there’s a lot to like. The mean marketing budget of the more than 200 companies surveyed jumped to $10.5 million from $8.3 million during the previous fiscal year, representing an increase of more than 26%. Of the respondents who shared a budget figure with MM&M, nearly 92% reported a year-over-year increase. By comparison, in MM&M’s 2018 survey, the year-over-year budget increase was just 7%.
So if budgets are up by that much, everything’s gotta be sunshine and rainbows, right?
