Almost half of doctors have participated in e-detailing at least once

Almost half of the physicians surveyed in the Sources & Interactions Study, September 2013 – Medical/Surgical Edition say that have participated in at least one pharmaceutical manufacturer e-detail presentation in the past.

About 9% say that their most recent e-detail participation occurred within the last month, 11% participated 1-3 months ago, 6% participated 4-6 months ago and 22% participated more than 6 months ago. Physicians said that they spend an average of 10 minutes during an e-detail presentation, with 30% averaging between 5-9 minutes per presentation.

Kantar Media’s Sources & Interactions™ Studies offer a detailed examination of healthcare professionals’ online and mobile activities, e-detailing experience, and exposure to (and evaluation of) information sources including traditional and emerging media, pharma reps, CME, conventions and more. The Medical/Surgical edition, conducted every six months, reports on the media preferences and habits of more than 3,000 physicians across 22 specialties; annual studies provide similar perspective on Pharmacy, NP/PA, Eyecare, Dental, Radiology, Managed Care, and Hospital C-Suite audiences. Sources & Interactions was designed to help marketers and their agencies cost-effectively allocate resources to their overall promotional mix, and provide publishers with specific insight about where their offerings fit into physicians’ (and other healthcare professionals’) information inventory.
