Field clinical teams are central to engaging with the medical community and to educating patients and caregivers.
For most pharma manufacturers, the clinical messaging function is anchored by a team of field-based clinical communications experts. Many firms increasingly rely on outsourced providers to recruit, hire, and manage those experts. The ideal clinical communication outsourcing solution is to work with a partner that provides a true multichannel array of clinical communications offerings.
A multichannel partner offers 2 important advantages:
- The ability to implement field-based clinical specialists who can respond to a variety of needs throughout the entire product life cycle
- The ability to provide important field support services, including clinical operations, recruiting, training, fleet, and information technology like iPad/Android tablets, other mobile devices, online applications and communities, and more
Touchpoint has decades of experience in recruiting, hiring, and managing field-based clinical teams.
Our teams are staffed with credentialed healthcare professionals (eg, RNs, PharmDs, PhDs, RPhs, MDs) who educate and support patients, caregivers, and/or healthcare professionals across the country.
