WaveData’s Scriptmap service helps customers to analyse and understand prescription data.
Selling pharmaceutical products into the UK requires knowing where they are being prescribed, what competing products exist and having an understanding of the market. Scriptmap gives you the ability to analyse and understand GP prescriptions.
The graph below shows Buprenorphine Transdermal Patches 52.5mcg/hr (3 days/72 hrs) 4, comparing prescription total cost in England with the average market price.
It is interesting that the trends were initially fairly similar, flat to gentle decline. However, more recently the average market price has started increasing. Although the prescription cost is falling, something is forcing the market price up. This is normally an availability problem causing buyers to compete on price for fewer packs.
