RealTime Dynamix: Hyperkalemia Cardiology US (annual)

The hyperkalemia market underwent sweeping changes with the introduction of Relypsa’s Veltassa in the beginning of 2016. Veltassa represented the first new therapy for the treatment of hyperkalemia in over 50 years. In 2017, a new competitor in AstraZeneca/ZS Pharma’s ZS-9 may come into play, however the company has received 2 Complete Response Letters thus far.

RealTime Dynamix™: Hyperkalemia provides a detailed and timely look at how the hyperkalemia market is evolving, with updates of hyperkalemia treatment patterns, comparative industry contact rates, key launch metrics for Veltassa (and later Lokelma), and awareness of products in development. By incorporating fixed measures with variable content that is refreshed quarterly, this report enables you to react to changes in the market and capitalize on opportunities for your brand. The rapid field-to-insight turnaround, highly relevant content, and unparalleled knowledge of the hyperkalemia market makes this an essential tool for companies competing in the space as well as those with near term plans to enter it.

Each year, ~100 US cardiologists participate in an online survey. Respondents may only participate in two surveys per year. Respondents are recruited from the Spherix Network, a proprietary group of over 900 clinical cardiologists. Our collaboration with this network leads to more engaged respondents resulting in higher quality output delivered quickly and frequently. Additionally, this provides an opportunity to easily revisit physicians who respond in a certain manner to get even more granular insight.

This report has been fielded since Q1 2016.
