      New Study Finds Federally-Funded Technology Saved Medicare $9 Billion

      A new study quantifying a 21-fold return on investment suggests an efficient — and non-partisan — method to cut healthcare spending is to invest in basic research. The paper tracks how a new technology aids doctors in reducing the number of unnecessary drug injections used to treat a blinding condition called wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). According to the study, Medicare has enjoyed $9 billion in savings over an eight year period from more efficient use of the effective, but expensive, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents used to treat wet AMD. This compares favorably to the approximately $400 million investment over ...

      Sales into G&H’s other target market sector – life sciences – have risen at a slower rate, but at £9.6 million were still up nearly 10 per cent on the prior year. Key applications here include optical coherence tomography (OCT), laser surgery and microscopy, with Webster writing: “Despite the increase in revenue the [life sciences] profit did decline year on year, which is primarily due to the investments made into future capabilities. Though life sciences is a relatively small sector for G&H, we see this as a strategically important one going forward.
