Spain Patient Support Programs (PSP) Market Executive Analysis

Spain's Patient Support Programs (PSP) market is expected to grow from $xx Bn in 2022 to $xx Bn in 2030 with a CAGR of 8.9% for the year 2022-30. One of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, Spain is also home to some of the world's top universities. The healthcare system in Spain is considered to be one of the best in the world. It provides universal healthcare across Spain and is mostly funded by social security contributions from taxpaying citizens.

The budget allotted to the Ministry of Health in 2023 will rise by 6.5%, totalling $3322.15 Mn, in the context of a decentralized healthcare system where spending by the Spanish Ministry of Health accounts for less than 3% of overall government spending. This amount reflects the distribution of funding from the national public budget for 2023 as well as the European Recovery and Resilience Facility. Notably, $3.43 Mn and $4.50 Mn are allotted to the newly established National Public Health Agency and the national network for public health surveillance, respectively. A further $1409.29 Mn has been set up for the centralized purchase of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Through promoting treatment adherence, enhancing clinical outcomes, enhancing patient experience, and enhancing the quality of life, patient support programs seek to offer answers that go beyond the medicine itself. Spanish patient support programs are created to give patients access to knowledge, instruction, and services that can help them manage their medical conditions. These initiatives seek to enhance patients' quality of life while guiding them through Spain's intricate healthcare system. To assist patients in understanding their diseases and available treatments, many patient support organizations in Spain offer educational materials. Some examples of patient support programs in Spain include AEAL (Spanish Association of Patients with Lymphoma, Myeloma, and Leukemia), FEDER (Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases), and ACCU Spain (Spanish Association of Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis).

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

In Spain, chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer are becoming more common. PSP can offer the continuing monitoring and assistance that these diseases demand. The need for PSP is anticipated to increase as the population ages. Delivering PSP to patients has become simpler due to technological developments like telemedicine and smartphone applications. This could boost PSP effectiveness and patient involvement, both of which could contribute to the Spain PSP market expansion.

Market Restraints

Significant time, money, and human capital are needed for PSP implementation and administration. The expansion of the Spain PSP market can be limited by the lack of resources for investment in PSP by small and mid-sized pharmaceutical businesses. In order to adopt PSP, patient data privacy is a crucial problem, and businesses must adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Concerns regarding data privacy may prevent some patients from taking part in PSP.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

Patient support programs were mentioned in Royal Decree 957/2020, of 3 November, on the regulation of non-interventional studies of medicinal products for human use. Despite the rise of patient support programs ("PSPs") in recent years, up-to-date regulation on such programs has been relatively scarce.

According to RD 957/2020, it is forbidden to run or sponsor observational studies (OS) with the objective to promote medicines. Then it adds that PSPs under which information is gathered through “planned contacts with patients” can only be carried out in Spain under a protocol that contemplates any of the purposes identified in the definition of observational studies. According to Catalonian guidelines on PSP, the programs must serve to help the patients understand the development of the disease, improve their quality of life or contribute to adequate compliance with the treatment. In Spain, only health care professionals (HCPs) or patient organizations are allowed to communicate PSPs to patients.
