"The latest research reveals physician site traffic is spread among product sites of new and early launch stage treatments, those with clinical news coverage, and consistent with years past, products with a significant consumer advertising component," states Mark Bard, president of Manhattan Research. He continues, "We have seen these product sites evolve into brand gateways with visitation from physicians, healthcare professionals, and consumers and with the majority of the top 10 product sites changing from year to year, there is clearly a need among physicians for the most upto- date product information."

For the sixth consecutive year, Manhattan Research has determined the leading online physician destinations based on the number of physician visitors as well as the content satisfaction of those who visit. In-depth analysis of top product and corporate pharmaceutical websites, health portals, online journal sites, specialty-specific sites, newsletters and society sites is now available as part of the ePharma Physician® v7.0 advisory service.
