Manhattan ResearchWhile most marketers have accepted that nearly all physicians are online today, the more difficult part is figuring out where to find these physicians on the World Wide Web. Finding the right promotional mix for connecting with physicians can be a challenging proposition, as physicians use third-party sites - such as the WebMD Professional Network, the New England Journal of Medicine, or specialty specific sites - more frequently than they use pharma-owned properties. As a result, brands realize that it is essential to connect with physicians through a variety of online professional resources - but figuring out where to find these physicians can prove difficult.

"Physician Digital Media Landscape: Connecting with Physicians Through Online Professional Resources," is part of Manhattan Research's ePharma Physician® market research and advisory service and provides a roadmap for physician marketers and media planners. The report explores the top professional medical websites, specialty sites, print and online medical journals, and professional email newsletters for primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, cardiologists, gastroenterologists, infectious disease/HIV physicians, rheumatologists, and OB/GYNs. "Physician Digital Media Landscape" also includes interviews with industry experts, case studies, and a look at the future of physician marketing.

"This guide is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding how physicians gather information online today," says Meredith Ressi, Vice President of Research at Manhattan Research. "Many companies are struggling to understand the appropriate promotional mix across the vast range of online resources used by physicians. This data shows the professional sources physicians rely on to gather professional medical information."
