Medscape is the leading source of clinical news, health information and point-of-care tools for health care professionals in the U.S. and globally. Medscape offers health care professionals the most robust and integrated medical information and educational tools. On an annual basis our U.S. visitor count exceeds 730,000 active U.S. physicians and 1.9 million health care professionals. In EU4, our count of active physicians exceeds 500,000. Our sample includes physician specialists and primary care physicians, pharmacists, nurses, NPPA’s, hospital administrators, lab technicians and many other types of health care professionals.
The source for Medscape’s online market research sample is selected from our above outlined proprietary network of practicing health care professionals who join Medscape to access our clinical content (news, condition and drug information, journal articles), CME activities and clinical tools (pill identifier, drug interaction tool, clinical calculators). Health care professionals in the U.S. can opt-out of participating in market research but all other HCP’s who have registered on Medscape can be sampled for a study and are part of our “denominator.” Physicians in EU4 (U.K., Germany, Italy and Spain) opt in during registration.
Because of Medscape’s professional utility, approximately 60% of US physicians use it, giving Medscape unique access to a very broad array of health care providers with the ability to drill down to the MSA level. This unique position within the medical field gives Medscape a recruiting advantage. As such, expected response rates among those who have ever responded are much higher and are thus more representative across a number of domains such as professional role, ethnicity and rural vs urban coverage. Medscape adheres to the ESOMAR Code on Market and Social Research and the CASRO/Insights Association.
Medscape’s health care professional market research services have the power to quickly pinpoint and target the exact high value and engaged physicians and health care professionals you're looking for. We can recruit based upon your existing target list or by using our physician registration data as well as by leveraging our third-party behavioral data partnerships for targeting by diagnosis code, prescribing behavior, CPT code, etc.
Medscape also offers full-service market research solutions including questionnaire design, survey programming, data tabs, data analysis and reporting. Key examples of the types of market research studies conducted include awareness and brand tracking, new product/service interest, quick turn-around pulse studies and message/communications testing.
