Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) April 19, 2005
Estco Medical released today its newest online software application, MedigentÂ® Thought Leader, serving pharmaceutical and medical device product managers by gathering key opinion leaders in a central online location that focuses on a specific brand. For physicians, who increasingly rely on the web as a principal information resource, Medigent Thought Leader offers an easy to use, collaborative environment for obtaining interactive product data and clinical education. Medigent Thought Leader is the latest addition to EstcoÂs Medigent software suite, which enables life science companies to launch and manage online marketing initiatives.
"Managing relationships and building credibility with key opinion leaders are the driving forces behind Medigent Thought Leader, which will keep physicians engaged and increase their productivity," said John Estafanous, President of Estco Medical. "Medigent Thought Leader allows product managers to rapidly launch effective online communities that will appeal to physicians and ultimately increase their loyalty."
Using Medigent Thought Leader, influential key decision makers join brand-focused online communities to obtain product education, articles, meeting information, speaker materials, video and interactive libraries, best practices forums, newsletters and FAQs. Members of Medigent Thought Leader are recruited either internally among existing customers or through EstcoÂs panel of more than 12,000 cooperating physicians.
For product and brand managers, Medigent Thought Leader is a robust marketing and educational tool designed to support specific conferences, or serve as an ongoing resource for thought leaders throughout the lifecycle of a brand. Among a range of administrator tools, the software allows managers to measure usage, track program success, and enables multiple brand managers to moderate and track group members. A flexible application that can be rapidly launched, Medigent Thought Leader-powered communities offer a level of efficiency that will improve communication channels with thought leaders, thus, achieving a higher level of physician advocacy.
"Medigent Thought Leader increases global acceptance of brands because it allows the site administrators to furnish fresh facts and feedback at all times into the pool of information on a product," said Estafanous. "In essence, it extends face-to-face meetings and can prolong valuable discussions in a centralized location."
