So much has gone virtual due to Covid-19, but physicians still value in-person sales and service visits, according to Bain & Company’s latest survey of frontline providers, conducted with Dynata. Prior to Covid, about three-fourths of physicians preferred face-to-face engagement with medtech and pharmaceutical reps. Today, more are open to virtual approaches and a reduction in visit frequency, but a majority still prefer at least some in-person interaction once the pandemic passes. To address these shifting customer preferences, medtech and pharma companies will need to continue in-person interactions while adding digital capabilities.
As the global pandemic deepens and the human cost of Covid-19 rises, the novel coronavirus outbreak is sending shocks through the world economy. But across industries, companies can take action now to protect their employees and customers and minimize the economic damage.
