THE CHALLENGE:


Our client had developed a new cardiovascular product with strong clinical data on
patients with co-morbid renal failure. They needed to understand the size of the current pool of co-morbid patients and also examine predictors of renal failure in cardiovascular
patients to help target patients at particular risk of developing renal
failure.

Beacon agreed a study plan using patient hospital records that examined over 2.5m
patient episodes, covering 900,000 discreet patients over an eight year period.

ACTIONABLE INSIGHT:

We were able to provide our client with an analysis that supported their focus on renal failure patients and that allowed them to explain to local specialists the prevalence and incidence of renal failure following cardiovascular conditions in their practices and illustrate the added resource impact of this co-morbidity across general medicine, cardiology and nephrology.
