According to a new study from M3, you have an average of about 20 hours a week to capture a doctor’s attention while they’re online.  However, recently, the question hasn't been whether or not doctors are online, but how do we reach them while they’re online.  Results of the M3 survey show that above all else, credibility may be the biggest factor in getting physicians attention.

Very exciting to see the leaders in tech partner with the leaders in cancer care.  I believe the next revolution in medicine will be driven by technology and the front line health care and research institutes.


Aggregating and utilizing data intelligently will help clinicians and reseachers better provide care to the community.  The lines between research trials and the standards of care may gradually blur as new technology driven treatment strategies emerge.
