SK&A’s Research Center
In-house analysts keep the data fresh and useful
SK&A healthcare databases are comprised of the most up-to-date information available in the industry today. Our research shows that 12 percent of physicians move each year. That means we update over 100,000 physician files in our database every year!
What allows us to keep up with the constant change and offer our customers the most accurate marketing information? Our team of 108 experienced Research Associates in our advanced Research Center.
