Trinity Life Sciences, a leader in global life sciences solutions, and Toluna, a leading consumer intelligence platform that delivers insights on demand, announced today the availability of a new brief regarding the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare market research.
The co-sponsored brief, based on a survey of approximately 560 healthcare providers in the U.S., finds that physicians in private practices or community settings have an increased availability to participate in research. This increase in availability appears to be driven partially by a decrease in on-site patient volume.
In fact, 49% of HCPs surveyed indicate an increased availability to participate in research studies, while 35% indicate their availability was the same as before COVID-19.
“Response rates among healthcare professionals have remained steady during the COVID-19 global crisis. We are continuously aware and respectful of those on the front lines. However, overall, we have found physicians and other healthcare professionals are ready and willing to participate in market research,” said Steve Orlick, Senior Vice President and Team Lead for Healthcare for Toluna. “We have observed an uptick in several specialties as treatment patterns for seeing patients and patient volume have shifted temporarily.”
“It is not surprising that physicians in hospitals that are treating COVID-19 patients have lower availability for market research at this time,” said Clive Mendonca, PhD, Director, Trinity. “However, as more patients push their regularly scheduled appointments or elective procedures, we do see that doctors in private practices and community offices have high availability and willingness to participate in research studies now as their time permits.”
