Market Research for a Growing and Changing Industry
Not a day goes by without a story about healthcare in the United States being highlighted in a newspaper. But the news tells only part of the story.
With health insurance, all sectors – insurers, providers, employers and consumers – are seeking ways to reduce their health care costs without sacrificing quality health care. Consequently, there is a trend for health insurance companies, in partnership with providers and employers, to develop and promote health and wellness programs, preventative care and disease management programs.
With pharmaceutical companies, the challenge is to understand attitudes and behaviors among two distinctly different targets – consumers/patients and the medical community. There is a need to understand patient attitudes and behaviors in order to create compelling marketing materials and increase patient compliance. Among physicians, there is the need to understand their prescribing behaviors, and how they make treatment decisions, in order to create meaningful, targeted messaging.
