New Study Shares Benchmarks for Medical Science Liaisons: Gaining Access and Forging Relationships with Key Opinion Leaders
Date:2/16/2009

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- New research has shown that 78 percent of companies continue to utilize their medical science liaison (MSL) resources to maximize growth potential for post-launch activities. As laws continue to restrict relationships between pharmaceutical companies and physicians, finding the right way to time, build and maintain relationships can have a dramatic impact on a products success and company profit levels. Many organizations wonder if they are using their MSL resources to the right capacity. Nearly two-thirds of companies prefer a closer relationship of one manager to 10 or fewer medical specialists. However, a full third of companies move in the other direction with managers overseeing 11 to 16 or more liaisons. This research uncovers benchmarks from industry leaders regarding the optimal size, mix and service frequencies of these elite medical specialist groups in an effort to build strong, productive relationships.
