Show Notes

In the midst of a pandemic situation that requires social distancing measures to minimize personal contact, how are non-emergency physicians continuing to engage with their patients? Further, what are their expectations around pharmaceutical field representatives and how they need to receive important information on potential products for treating their patients? A recent survey of 263 US clinicians provides a glimpse into their perspective.

In this episode in our Coronavirus Special Edition Series, Jodi Scarbrough, Director of Custom Research at Syneos Health, discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the adoption of telemedicine and teledetailing, and how these platforms might play out in a post-pandemic environment.
