Top medical affairs team safely ahead, but competition for 2nd and 3rd place is fierce

Answering Key Questions about Medical Affairs Teams for 8 Major NSCLC Brands

Gilotrif (afatinib; Boehringer Ingelheim): Gilotrif’s overall quality score is within a point of three other teams’ scores. Which ones?
Iressa (gefitinib; AstraZeneca): Does Iressa’s team earn higher satisfaction scores for responding promptly to medical inquiries or providing relevant resources and materials?
Keytruda (pembrolizumab; Merck & Co.): In which important area does Keytruda’s team outperform two of the leading teams?
Opdivo (nivolumab; Bristol-Myers Squibb): Which team’s satisfaction scores are consistently highest; Opdivo’s, Keytruda’s, or Avastin’s?
Tarceva (erlotinib; Roche): Tarceva’s team earned a top-three satisfaction score in two key areas. Which two?
Xalkori (crizotinib; Pfizer/EMD Serono): Which team responds faster to medical inquiries; Xalkori’s, Opdivo’s, or Keytruda’s?
Zykadia (ceritinib; Novartis): Zykadia’s team earns high satisfaction scores in a few areas. But are those areas important to oncologists?

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.
