Case Study 5
5-nation European patient records study shows lack of physician adherence to treatment guidelines
Often our clients do not know the degree to which physicians adhere to recommended treatment guidelines even when their company’s product would benefit from such adherence. We provide accurate metrics on guideline adherence and the driving factors for following protocols, and we can do this not only in the United States but in other nations, as shown in this de-identified study of 5 European Union nations (certain outputs and labels also were altered to protect client confidentiality). In the case study below, we found that although physicians reported they usually followed guidelines, actual chart data revealed underusage of the recommended treatment (click on image of poster below to view PDF).
