Unlocking Precision Medicine

By Paul Howard, Peter W. Huber
Encounter Books 2016 ISBN: 1594039178

One day, each one of us—or our loved ones—will be a patient in need. When that day comes, the cost and quality of the treatments available to us will hinge on the decisions Congress and the White House make today to embrace innovation or to undermine it.

Paul Howard and Peter W. Huber


New medicines in the pipeline can extend lives, save money, and even help stop disease before symptoms appear—if we don’t discourage their innovators and investors by trying to lower drug prices artificially. Unlocking Precision Medicine explores the environment necessary for creation of these health care game changers, and explains how the marketplace can effectively make them more affordable to all without killing the golden goose.
