InCrowd, helping the pharmaceutical industry make smart decisions faster, honors physicians today on National Doctors’ Day. Physicians not only dedicate themselves to patient health and care, they also contribute their experience through primary research leading to medical innovation.
National Doctors’ Day takes place on March 30th to honor physicians for their work and contributions to their communities. Established in 1933 by Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of a doctor, who began to honor physicians by sending greeting cards and placing red carnations on the graves of deceased physicians. In 1958, the House of Representatives officially recognized Doctors' Day; and in 1991, President George Bush issued a proclamation that designated March 30 as National Doctor's Day. As a celebration of National Doctor’s Day, InCrowd shares some of the valuable feedback their Physician Crowds have provided:
Is Social Media Allowed in Hospitals? InCrowd asked over 400 doctors if they are able to access the Internet on computers connected to their hospital’s Internet, the results were split with 55% of physicians being blocked from access and 45% of physicians having Internet access.
Do you currently participate in patient engagement activities? Patient engagement has been a hot topic this year – to learn more about the current state of patient engagement, InCrowd turned to their Physician Crowd. 60% of primary care physicians surveyed answered that they currently participate in patient engagement activities. Surprisingly, 17% of physicians queried were not familiar with the term and 14% do not believe that patient engagement is worth the effort.
Why Physicians participate in real time research. To better understand why physicians participate in real time research, InCrowd asked 100 physicians what they find appealing about the InCrowd method. They agreed that short questions and fast surveys that are easy to answer on their cell phones appeal to them and fit in their busy schedules.
InCrowd thanks the physician community for their contribution to health and wellness.
