What will the content of the survey be used for and for whom?
The research sponsor and purpose will vary depending on the study. To not bias the research, we are unable to reveal their identity. However, most of our clients are multi-national pharmaceutical companies specializing in developing products and treatments for the therapeutic area of the study topic.

Are my responses anonymous?
Absolutely, your responses are anonymous. As a third-party market research firm, we never share your personal identifiable information with the research sponsor. Your responses will never be tied back to you as an individual. We always present the research findings as an aggregate between what you and your colleagues have collectively answered.

Will my name, title, or contact information be shared with research sponsors or publications?
No, we will never share that information to our clients nor any publications. If we need data from any of our physician panelists for a publication, we will state it explicitly in the first page of the survey and will ask for your consent to proceed.

How do I know if I qualify to participate?
Every online survey starts with a short eligibility section followed by the main survey. Each survey has different screening requirements, so we cannot guarantee eligibility every time. Every eligibility section will typically take from 15 seconds up to 2 minutes of your time.

What do you do with the data collected in the eligibility section?
We discard the data from the eligibility section, if you do not qualify to answer the main study questions. The data from the eligibility section is used for profiling and it is not useful for the study if it is not coupled with answers for the main survey.

How do I verify if the research is legitimate?
You can search the validity of our studies on the CRIC research verification service.

Recalling how I have treated recent patients is a form of self evaluation. Your surveys are always portrayed accurately with respect to their time commitment, which allows me to be flexible about when I complete them.”
