CMI/Compas has launched its 2015 Media Vitals™, the deepest research critical for reaching, engaging, and owning target HCP audiences. In July 2015, the company conducted its annual Media Vitals™ Media Consumption Habits of HCPs study to assess the key factors impacting prescriber engagement, uncovering their knowledge seeking and gathering needs, preferences, sources, times of day, and omni-channel touch points. New this year, the research expands more physician specialties, and also includes pharmacists, dentists, optometrists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

Among this year’s findings:

  • The surprising news that rep access is actually beginning to improve among most specialties. Overall, only 19% of all physicians state that they will not see reps in person in 2015, down from 25% in 2014. Those brands trying to reach PCPs, cardiologists, and oncologists will have more access to reps.
  • The enthusiasm shown for treatment guidelines, physician education, and reprints. 88% of all physicians rank treatment guidelines as their highest priority, and 85% are seeking product information.
  • A renewed interest in medical reprints post-Sunshine Act, with 90% of HCPs saying they have value.
  • Media Vitals™ 2015 has insights into which top 3 companies – according to HCPs – employ the most knowledgeable sales reps, have the most creative marketing materials, and offer the best support services.

Media Vitals™ data will also be highlighted in a free report, “What Prescribers Want and Need from Pharma 10-Specialty Report.” The report is available by request.
