- End client was a global pharmaceutical company interested in conducting research for product development purposes
- Recruitment of Interventional Cardiologists (ICs) presented a challenge since pool of respondents was already small. Furthermore, certain hospitals prohibit their physicians from participating in any form of commercial research activities.
- This was compounded by a strict screening criteria where ICs had to have performed at least XX number of procedures in the past year.
- Adherence to certain protocols meant that recruitment of professionals from the medical industry usually is a drawn out process.
- Doctors and surgeons are also notoriously hard to get a hold of due to their busy schedule. Naturally, interviews had to be conducted at their convenience which necessitated close follow-up and co-ordination to secure appointments and accommodate last minute changes.
- Client was successful in achieving their quota of 20 qualified ICs through our extensive network and personal contacts within the local medical community.
- We were able to recruit a good mix of cardiologists from both public and private practice, and managed to deliver the project one week ahead of schedule!
