Primary, or essential, hypertension is defined as persistently elevated blood pressure (BP) without any identifiable cause. It is a major risk factor for various cardiovascular diseases (e.g., coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure), renal failure, and death. Hypertension is treated with a vast array of drugs belonging to a large number of classes, including numerous fixed-dose combination (FDC) products. Standard first-line treatment may involve monotherapy or combination therapy, and guidelines emphasize the additive effects of using two or more drugs from different antihypertensive drug classes. The Hypertension Treatment Algorithm provides insights into drug class prescribing patterns among a wealth of treatment options. Owing to the wide availability of generics, pricing pressures are of minimal concern.
Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis provides detailed, quantitative analysis of the treatment journey and brand usage across lines of therapy and overall using real-world, patient-level claims data so that marketers can accurately assess their source of business, benchmark usage against competitors, and quantify areas of opportunity for their marketed or emerging brand.
