Health Economic Considerations of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Join us Tuesday, April 21 for the next USC School of Pharmacy Town Hall Talk: “Health Economic Considerations of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Potential Value of Treatments, Vaccines and Workforce Capacity Building in the U.S. and Worldwide.”

In addition to its devastating human costs, the COVID-19 crisis is wreaking widespread financial havoc. Within days of the virus being reported in the U.S., Bill Padula and colleagues began investigating the value of hypothetical treatments and vaccines for COVID-19 by applying data from the World Health Organization and Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. Padula and his team’s modeling methods are being used to identify optimal price points and to gauge the long-term effects that these treatments would have on the population. They also have explored U.S. health system capacity issues related to the volume of physicians and nurses as well as ventilators. Padula will share his initial research findings and offer potential policy solutions for grappling with COVID-19—as well as with future outbreaks of a similar nature.
