As important criteria for steering successful leadership reputation, oncologists rated the following specific commercial and marketing activities in order of impact.

  1. Length of time in market
  2. Corporate reputation
  3. Medical educational activities
  4. Patient access (affordability and availability)
  5. Patient support programs
  6. Supportive tools / services for healthcare professionals
  7. Promotional educational activities
  8. Sales representatives and MSLs
  9. Supportive digital health solutions

Subtle geographical differences were observed. US oncologist favored “longevity”, “corporate reputation” and “patient access (affordability / availability) to treatments”. EU based oncologists stressed more importance on “medical educational activities” and “supportive tools and services for healthcare professionals”.

To gain richer insight and understanding for your organization and your competitors, we analyzed performance by each attribute based on oncologist perspectives with their chosen life science companies. Get in touch to find out how your company and your competitors performed.

In a future release, we will explore specific attributes revealing company performance and opportunity.

About the study

  • Define the meaning of “corporate leadership” to the oncology community
  • Reveal the leaders in oncology and ImmunoOncology (IO) and to compare / contrast how companies are evaluated by oncologists
  • Assess current drivers & barriers to ImmunoOncology treatment use and identify what oncologists would like to see improved by corporate leaders in the IO space
