Analyzing the societal value of new psychotropic drugs

The Foundation's Investigator Awards in Health Policy Research Program was designed to produce major works from senior and new investigators that would add to the health policy field's knowledge base.This project uses a broad range of analyses that look at the benefits of the newer drugs versus older ones, how effective the newer drugs are when used in practice, and how factors like marketing and pharmacy benefits management affect their use. The findings will identify policy levers that could help increase the value of U.S. psychiatric drug spending.
