Vogel Farina, an agency supporting a drug manufacturer in its ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncologists) presence, wanted to understand the effectiveness of education disseminated to physicians at their booth at ASCO .
How Truth On Call helped: We conducted 4 text message based questions of physicians attending ASCO by asking them if they were aware of the manufacturer before ASCO, to rate effectiveness of education received at this manufacturer's booth and if they had visited the both, what they would do next with the information they received and if they would use the QR code received at the booth.
Outcome: About 50% were aware before ASCO of this particular manufacturer and the booth had a positive impact on them. All physicians were going to research the product more on their own post-conference. The QR code was going to be used by about 2/3rds of physicians who received it.
A drug manufacturer was curious what a certain physician specialty thought of their drug, and if the annual conference for that specialty had measurable impact.
How Truth On Call helped: Before the conference we ran a 15 question survey of physicians who would be attending their annual conference. During the conference we conducted 6 text message based questions of these physicians to get their perspective on conference proceedings and the manufacturers presence. After the conference we conducted a follow on survey to determine impact. All of this was correlated with IMS decile.
Outcome: It is clear that certain messages were not clear pre-conference and that the conference helped in clarifying the message. That message needs to be reinforced in sales calls.
An analyst at a hedge fund needed to understand what physicians thought of a trial’s results presented at ASCO (the American Society of Clinical Oncology).
How Truth On Call helped: Ask 100 oncologists at ASCO, “What is your impression of the results of the XYZ trial? A Groundbreaking findings, B Very compelling, but I have 1-2 questions, C Interesting but I have several questions, D Not interesting. Respond A, B, C, or D.”
Outcome: The trial is considered groundbreaking or very compelling by 80% of physicians. The implications for the company sponsoring the trial are very positive.
