Check out what’s new - Sources and Interactions with physician prescribing data

If you are a current subscriber, you already know that the Sources and Interactions Medical Surgical study gives you important insights into how physicians stay up-to-date on industry developments and interact with sources of information like digital and traditional media, technology and promotional messaging.

We have great news - now you can analyze Sources and Interactions data by prescribers of specific drug classes and prescribing patterns! This supplemental report contains the same "Sources of Information" tables you value and currently use, but now you have the ability to filter by prescribers of various drug classes.

With the supplemental report, you can access several drug groupings such as Multispecialty, Allergy/Pulmonary, Dermatology, Diabetes/Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Disease, Neurology/Psychiatry, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Oncology and Rheumatology. As a convenience to users, Kantar Media organized the drug classes into broad categories for conditions likely to be treated by these specialties. The tables are organized within these categories by the individual drug classes.
