Top Takeaways
  • All to play for at the top, limited options at the bottom. Only 3 points separate the top 3 leading brands in terms of overall quality of interactions, whereas brands at the bottom could struggle to make up ground.
  • Information is the #1 priority. The most important medical affairs services all relate to providing information that doctors can use to make better treatment decisions.
  • Remicade biosimilars are in the mix, but fortunes vary. Two Remicade biosimilars are available in the US, but doctors don’t see this as being equal across several attributes; which one is winning, and what can the other one do to change perceptions?
  • Huge variations in activity. In the past six months, only 4 of the 11 teams interacted with more than 70% of doctors surveyed, and the least active teams saw no more than 14% of them.
  • Doctors want to see teams in-person and not too often. The report reveals how, and how frequently your team should engage.
