Manhattan ResearchMark Bard, president of pharmaceutical and healthcare market research company Manhattan Research, will host a complimentary physician marketing webinar on Tuesday, August 4 at 11am and 3pm EDT. The webinar, ePharma Physician® v9.0: Navigating the Physician Digital Resource Mix, will preview the data and insights available in the company's recently released ePharma Physician® study and advisory service.

ePharma Physician® differentiates itself from Manhattan Research's broader physician studies by probing deeper into the digital resource and communication preferences of physicians interacting with pharmaceutical, device, and biotech companies online. This group of "ePharma Physicians" has now reached a significant 87% of the total U.S. physician population, making it necessary for manufacturers, agencies, and medical content providers to understand this market and leverage technology in building successful relationships.

"As digital becomes a core part of the brand planning discussion, marketers and our agency clients are demanding deeper insight into the specific sites physicians are using online - and they want to know what these visitors think of their site as well as the competition," said Mr. Bard. "In addition to tracking online journals, specialty sites, corporate sites, and product sites by specialty, we combine that research with a review of 'what if' scenarios to help our clients better understand what physicians want from the next generation of the clinical web."

During the August 4th webinar, Mr. Bard will review the following key questions:

  • In what ways is the shifting professional resource and communication mix affecting physician interaction with pharmaceutical and device companies?
  • How can marketers leverage their specific physician audience's journal, specialty, product and corporate site mix to dictate more intelligent media plans in 2010?
  • Is email a viable communication channel in the manufacturer-physician relationship?
  • How are companies using interactive detailing, video conferencing, and portals to evolve siloed sales force strategies to 360° customer service models?
  • What are the keys to success when building and managing a pharmaceutical customer service portal? What types of features do physician expect from these sites?
