Medical Information groups are an integral part of the medical discussion and collection of information from physicians, patients and payers. Medical Information teams shoulder greater responsibilities in addressing key concerns regarding commercial drugs and developing sales training and promotional materials.


However, the Medical Affairs function needs to ensure that its Medical Information activities are aligned with compliance requirements owing to stringent regulations in the industry.

Best Practices, LLC undertook benchmarking research to identify critical requirements for the Medical Affairs function to create successful Medical Information groups. The study provides benchmarks around the structure and leadership of Medical Information groups, and alignment of information activities with compliance requirements. It also delivers benchmarks around the required resource levels to create strong Medical Information groups and ways for efficient internal collaboration.
