As important as it is, many organizations lack a clear process and strategy for gathering and sharing Medical Insights that can help inform overall Medical Affairs strategies and plans. Indeed, the realm of Medical Insights and Intelligence - driven by dedicated spend, speed and new skills - is a ripe area for improvement for Medical Affairs groups across the biopharma industry.

We launched this benchmarking research to identify the best practices for gathering and distributing insights within the Medical Affairs organization. The report provides benchmarks around the structure of Medical Insights and Dissemination groups; coordination, activities, training techniques and tools required for gathering insights; and key activities and tools required for disseminating insights to maximize effectiveness.

This research also highlights the most innovative practices and key lessons learned in successfully gathering and disseminating insights among industry-leading Medical Affairs groups.

Key Findings

Select key insights uncovered from this report are noted below. Detailed findings are available in the full report.


  • Insight Gathering Process and Its Effectiveness: Few conduct the Insight Process through a stand-alone group. Instead, they use various subfunctions to coordinate a slate of activities to ensure data is gathered and input into a system. They may choose to coordinate work across other inter-functional groups, often with limited success.
  • Medical Affairs Insight Leadership: Most companies lean on Field Teams and Medical Strategy to lead the Insight process. However, leading organizations also have thought-leader management and operations step in as well.
  • MSL Relationship Cultivation and Insights Harvesting: Thought-leaders, medical congresses and advisory boards are the most important data sources. MSLs and market access teams are seen as most effective for insight gathering.
