Close rivalries among US multiple sclerosis medical affairs teams. Will your team come out on top?

In the US, one multiple sclerosis medical affairs teams leads the way in terms of interaction frequency and overall quality of interactions, but there’s room for improvement in other areas. The 100 neurologists we polled provide insights on several medical affairs teams, and opinions are mixed. Improvement in at least one specific area is needed, 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: Multiple Sclerosis (US). Comparing 11 major multiple sclerosis treatments from Sanofi, Bayer, Biogen, Teva, Novartis, EMD Serono and Roche, this report reveals:

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

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. Only 4 points separate the top brand from a chasing pack of 3 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 1 of the 11 teams interacted with more than 70 percent of doctors surveyed, and the least active teams saw no more than 38 percent of them.
  • Doctors want to see teams in-person and not too often. The report reveals how, and how frequently your team should engage, and the relative importance of digital channels to your medical affairs strategy.
