Darnitsa’s Strategy – Improvement of Compliance in Patients with Cardiovascular Diseases30 September 2021
One of the reasons of development of complications from cardiovascular disease in Ukraine is the low compliance to treatment. Only 56% of patients with arterial hypertension* comply with the recommended treatment regimen – these are the data of the survey among the participants of the 22nd National Congress of Cardiologists of Ukraine, the title partner of which was Darnitsa Pharmaceutical Company.
According to Ihor Nykyforchyn, Medical Director of Darnitsa, the healthcare system must develop and be aligned with the times, namely - ensure the multi-factor approach to compliance. “Treatment compliance is an important factor influencing the therapeutic consequences and the efficacy of the healthcare system in general. Darnitsa is one of the leaders of the cardiovascular market, we consistently work in the direction of improvement of treatment compliance for patients to achieve better therapeutic results and reduction of expenses on medical care”, he emphasizes. “Affordability of Darnitsa’s drugs for patients and convenience of their use due to fixed combinations make it possible to accurately comply with the treatment regimen recommended by the doctor”, Nykyforchyn notes.
Apart from supporting patients, Darnitsa maintains a dialogue with healthcare specialists on the importance of medical compliance. During the 22nd National Congress of Cardiologists of Ukraine, Darnitsa, together with the leading specialists in treatment of cardiovascular diseases in Ukraine, focused its attention on the issues of treatment standards and presented its view on the ways of solving the problem of arterial hypertension treatment compliance.
