New study finds federally-funded technology saved Medicare $9 billion

A new study quantifying a 21-fold return on investment suggests an efficient 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). The technology, known as optical coherence tomography (OCT), is used around the world to help clinicians determine when to treat patients suffering from AMD with effective, but expensive, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) drugs.
