The latest Veeva Pulse Field Trends Report is out and it discusses the change in access to HCPs. Even pre-pandemic, face-to-face meetings were in decline but the report highlights that this has bounced back, and some. The figure now sits at 60% across all specialities and it is clear that how interactions take place has changed.
Alongside in-person meetings, video interaction has grown. Interestingly there is also a correlation between video calls and an increase in face-to-face meetings. Data from the report shows a 2.5x increase in rep meetings with oncologists where a mixture of video calls and in-person meetings was used, as opposed to in-person alone.
It also highlights a disparity in access depending on which pharma company is trying to make contact – different specialities have different response rates to contact and communication differs across pharma significantly. The main takeaway from the report is that digitally-enabled reps have seen more success. It is, therefore, important to equip your reps with the right tools to make this process easier and ensure the HCP experience is relevant. And this includes enabling reps to share copyright scientific content in the form of ePrints directly with HCPs as part of their continuous dialogue. As recent research shows, HCPs are far more likely to change prescribing habits based on original journal content.
