Panels

Boston Strategic Partners is currently looking for individuals with expertise in various fields of medicine, including direct patient care and clinical diagnostics, to join a distinguished panel of your peers and participate in market research studies (surveys, interviews, and focus groups).

 

 Who is Boston Strategic Partners?

Boston Strategic Partners is a consulting firm that offers three services to life science companies.  These services are: Strategy, Economic Outcomes and Clinical Publications.  Our work often requires talking specifically with health care experts and capturing their opinions concerning pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and diagnostics.  The consultants all possess at least one advanced degree in science, economics or business.

 Why should I join one of  your panels?
The panel will offer you the chance to express your opinion about currently available products as well as those that are still in development.  Your opinions will have a real impact for the providers of these products and may help to create a better product for you and your patients.  It also gives you an opportunity to become involved and establish a relationship with the companies that are providing the products and tools that you use.

 How does it work?

 

What should I expect after joining?
You should expect to hear from us periodically.  We will contact you only when when we are in need of your expert opinions.  We will not sell or distribute your information; we will only contact you with surveys related to your area(s) of expertise.

What are the surveys like?
Surveys vary, but for the most part, they will have a screener and a questionnaire.  The screener will take you about 5-10 minutes and is designed to understand whether you have the appropriate experience and expertise for the product at hand.  Most questionnaires take between 30-60 minutes to complete.  Sometimes questionnaires will be conducted over the phone; however, often, they are web surveys that can be started and completed on your schedule.  Content of the survey will generally ask about your experience and what you feel is important as it relates to a product.  Honorariums will be awarded to respondents who complete both the screener and questionnaire.

 How are the honorariums determined?
Honorariums are different for each project.  Depending upon the length of the survey and your expertise, honorariums range from $50 to $200 for website surveys.   The amount will be clearly stated in the initial invite letter inquiring about your interest in participating in the survey.

How will my privacy be protected?
We are committed to ensuring the privacy of our panel participants. All responses will remain anonymous and no personal information will be disclosed to any other parties.
