Top Takeaways

Can the runaway leader at the top be chased down? Nearly 10 points separate the leading brand from second place in terms of overall quality of interactions. Is it really a race for second place or can brands make up with significant lead.

Information is the #1 priority. The most important medical affairs services all relate to providing information that doctors can use to make better treatment decisions.

Huge variations in activity. In the past six months, only 1 of the 9 teams interacted with more than 70% of doctors surveyed, and the least active teams saw no more than 29% of them.

Doctors want to see teams in-person and not too often. The report reveals how, and how frequently your team should engage.

Digital interaction still some way off becoming the norm. For the most part, doctors want personal interactions, not emails or phone calls. Does this align with your strategy?
