Medium is one of the leading healthcare market research and insights firms in India with in-depth knowledge of various facets ranging from overall business and service delivery to marketing and sales. Having conducted a large number of challenging market research projects for leading pharmaceutical companies, global equipment & device manufacturers and several corporate hospitals, we offer a proven track-record of being able to deliver extremely relevant and actionable insights. We are relentlessly focused on helping our clients enhance their competitive edge in the marketplace and gain disproportionately high market share.
Even before we begin working on a project, we conduct a dipstick study and engage with a few senior physicians in the particular application area to get more than familiar with the patient dynamics and the competitive landscape. And we adopt a guided, but deliberately unstructured approach to interviews, which are conducted by our own senior team members. This helps us make inroads even with ‘difficult’ interviewees, capture behavioural nuances and iron out inconsistencies. We then synthesize the data in order to compile an accurate picture of the market and arrive at insights, which are viewed through the lens of meeting client’s business objectives. Such comprehensive healthcare market research includes healthcare industry analysis, market-specific forecasts, market drivers and barriers, competitor analysis, market entry strategy, attribute analysis and pricing strategy.
