How we used behavioural economic theory to reveal fresh insights into patient compliance

Our client currently has a product for a chronic rare disease which has seen an initial successful uptake. HCPs appear to support the product and are actively prescribing it to suitable patients.

However, sales data suggests that repeat prescriptions drastically reduce after the first 3-6 months. Although the product has a known SE profile, our client believes that this can be well managed and controlled.
