Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. Awarded Prestigious NCQA Certification for National Under Pressure(TM) Hypertension Management Program
Date:12/15/2008

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., announced today that Under Pressure(TM), its national hypertension disease management program developed in accordance with JNC-7 guidelines, has received Disease Management Program Design Certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA certification signifies that the Under Pressure program has passed a rigorous review and successfully meets objective, evidence-based, high standards of health care quality.

"In addition to offering highly effective treatments in cardiovascular care, we are committed to ensuring that consumers have access to high quality, practical tools to help them take the best possible care of their hearts and bodies," said Kevin McDermott, Vice President, Managed Markets, Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. "The Daiichi Sankyo Managed Markets team is honored to represent this widely recognized symbol of quality from the NCQA for our Under Pressure program."

With a focus on improving quality of care, the Under Pressure initiative was launched in 2006 to foster partnerships between leading managed care organizations and the healthcare providers in charge of patient care. The patient is encouraged to be more actively involved in the management of their cardiovascular health by emphasizing the key elements necessary to live with hypertension including diet, exercise and medication. Health plans drive the initiative by inviting appropriate plan members to participate in the campaign. Once patients opt-in, they receive regular educational mailings including an innovative DVD, and are directed to a program Web site featuring articles, which reinforce the educational mailings. Earlier this year, Daiichi Sankyo announced a culturally competent version of the Under Pressure initiative designed for African-Americans wit
