Top Takeaways

Leading team is way out front: Ranking far ahead of the rest for overall quality of interactions, despite a competing team’s higher performance scores.
Second place a dead heat: A mere tenth of a point separates the 2nd and 3rd place teams, though neither comes close to the market leader.
Highly competitive treatment area: Performance scores are generally high, and even the lowest ranking team scores relatively well for overall quality of interactions.
Top team is also the most active: Significantly more oncologists report interacting with the top brand’s medical affairs team in the last 6 months.
Solid performance in important areas: Most teams are doing well in areas oncologists consider important, but many still have specific improvements to make.
Email surprisingly popular: While US oncologists show little interest in other digital interactions, email is more popular in the US NSCLC market than in others.
Feedback points to good relationships: Although oncologists identified several areas where teams can improve, very few thought they needed to improve communication.
Clinical support is top priority: The most important medical affairs services for US oncologists all have to do with providing scientific, clinical, and product information.
