Foreign counterfeit drugs
There is an increasing flow of foreign counterfeit drugs into America. To avoid this, it is essential to ensure that these drugs meet the U.S. quality standards while adhering to the local regulations overseas. It is also essential to block all illegal trafficking of counterfeit medications.
US drug prices
Rising drug costs is one of the key issues persisting in the US. The price freezes in 2018 was a result of constant pressure from patients, politicians, and other regulatory bodies. Despite this, several companies hiked their prices even further during early 2019. One of the key pharmaceutical industry challenges in the US right now is to control drug prices and provide more accessible and affordable healthcare to the Americans.
Shift to patient-centric healthcare
The advent of technology has made the patients more informed and they are now likely to play an active role in any treatment plan prescribed by their doctor. While patient-centric healthcare provides several opportunities, it can also add on to the current pharmaceutical industry challenges. As healthcare consumerism rises, pharma companies must find ways to provide real-world research backup claims to justify their products and prices.
