Topsfield, MA February 15, 2018 – MedData Group, LLC, the leader in HCP data solutions for programmatic advertising and other multi-channel campaigns

announces the latest findings from their MedData Point physician survey. MedData Point is a market research program powered by MedData Group that collects and analyzes data to provide healthcare marketers with insights into the latest trends, technologies and perceptions in healthcare among physicians across a variety of specialties, ages, and practice sizes.

Pharmaceutical companies are one of the largest advertisers in the overall marketplace and across all media. They spend billions of dollars annually investing in marketing and advertising directly to consumers and to healthcare professionals (HCPs).  In this survey, we asked physicians how they engage with pharmaceutical content online and through targeted, programmatic advertising, as well as their use of social media. Based on 245 physician responses, MedData Group found that 75% of physicians are at least somewhat receptive to receiving direct to provider marketing from pharma companies, and drug information was one of the top ads that physicians chose to engage with online. In addition, when asked about their social media habits, we found that 80% of physicians say they are active on Facebook and 90% are active on LinkedIn.

Results of this survey indicate that physicians are active on multiple social media channels, and are open to receiving pharmaceutical advertisements across the web, including on social media. To read the complete survey, click here for the full list of findings.
