Patient Support Programs (PSPs) are maintained by several pharmaceutical companies to aid patients and/or medical professionals in better-managing disease and maximizing treatment. PSPs include a range of patient-directed interventions, from specific programs that attempt to educate patients and monitor patients on a particular medication to programs that specifically aim to improve illness management regardless of the patient's treatment. PSPs are now only recognized by organized systems in which a Marketing Authorization Holder (MAH) receives and gathers data regarding the use of its pharmaceuticals, according to a more limited definition of PSPs published by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Alcura provides individualized medication adherence programs in the UK that can assist patients in getting the best results for their health. These programs include patient education and counseling provided by call centers or nurses.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

In the UK, PSP use in healthcare is increasing along with other technological advancements.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

In the UK, the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) issued "Guidance Notes for patient safety and Pharmacovigilance in patient support programs" in 2011. The UK has industry codes specifically addressing PSPs and, in some cases, patient safety and data requirements or interactions with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and patients in connection with PSPs

Under ABPI guidance, PSPs typically include:

  • Compliance/adherence programs where consenting patients on medication are contacted to see how they are managing their medication
  • Call centers where patients or patient carers can contact the marketing authorization holder (MAH) to obtain further information on medication or a particular disease area as part of a structured program
  • Nurse-educator programs where nurses (either employed directly by a MAH or through a third party) interact directly with patients to provide education or disease awareness, to help them properly administer medications and manage their disease
  • Homecare (home delivery, homecare programs, or homecare services), is a homecare medicine delivery service that can be described as a service that delivers ongoing medicine supplies and, where necessary, associated care, initiated by the hospital prescriber, direct to the patient’s home with their consent with the purpose to improve patient care and choice of their clinical treatment
