Abstract

Systemic Arterial Hypertension (SAH) is a risk factor for 9.4 million deaths worldwide. In Brazil, the condition attributes an annual cost of approximately USD640,000,000 to the SUS. The epidemiological and economic analysis of Pharmaceutical Care (PC) in the management of hypertensive patients showed an improvement in blood pressure control, a reduction of the risk of SAH complications, and an investment return of over USD1.7 million after ten years. Therefore, this article aims to present a pharmacoeconomic tool capable of assisting decision making in the implementation of PC in the SUS. A systematic review is being conducted for the robustness of the estimation of clinical and epidemiological impact of SAH, its results will be tabulated and applied in the improvement of the tool together with the direct medical and non-medical costs, indirect costs and costs of the SAH. In addition, a Markov model will be designed to estimate the incidence of cardiovascular diseases and SAH’s associated diseases by studies of proteomics that address the Human Network Disease. We hope to validate this auxiliary tool and thus to improve blood pressure control among hypertensive patients, quality of life, to reduce comorbidities and deaths, as well as optimizing the use of health resources.
