Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, progressive, and potentially fatal cardiopulmonary syndrome that imposes a substantial burden both on patients in terms of morbidity and mortality and on managed care organizations in terms of resource utilization. This supplement to The American Journal of Managed Care presents managed care decision makers with information and evolving clinical evidence in support of the potential for combination therapy to become the standard of care for patients with PAH.
