Current & Future Trends in Physician E-Sampling
CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's competitive marketplace, many pharmaceutical companies recognize the need for alternative ways to supply physicians and their patients with samples of prescription medications. One approach that has gained momentum in the last several years is physician E-sampling - a program that enables physicians to order and manage prescription samples online.
While some companies have made substantial forays into the world of physician e-sampling, usually as a supplement to traditional sampling, others have done less in this area. This is important when you consider that 30% of patients in the United States are more likely to fill a prescription after initially receiving a sample from a physician.
