Published: February 1, 2018 Content info:

Close rivalries among US Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus medical affairs teams. Will your team come out on top?

In the US, nearly all of the medical affairs teams focused on oral Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus therapies which we surveyed are running neck and neck with at least one rival. The 100 diabetologists we polled say that each of those teams needs improvement in at least one specific area, but are those targeted improvements enough to put your team ahead of the competition?

Discover all the ways you can improve your medical affairs services in Medical Affairs Reputations: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (Orals) (US). Comparing 9 major oral Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus treatments from AstraZeneca, Eli Lilly, Boehringer Ingelheim, Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co., and Takeda, this report reveals:

  • How diabetologists rate your team overall, and on 12 key medical affairs services.
  • Which medical affairs services are most important.
  • What you can do to improve your medical affairs services.
  • How, and how often diabetologists want to meet with your team.

That's actionable information you can use to turn your team into one that doctors rely on.

Top Takeaways

  • All to play for at the top, limited options at the bottom. Less than 1 point separates 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.
  • Huge variations in activity. In the past six months, only 4 of the 9 teams interacted with more than 70% of doctors surveyed, and the least active teams saw no more than 32% of them.
  • Doctors want to see teams in-person and not too often. The report reveals how, and how frequently your team should engage.
  • Digital interaction still some way off becoming the norm. For the most part, doctors want personal interactions, not emails or phone calls. Does this align with your strategy?
