InCrowd lets physicians anonymously query their opted in colleagues via its new iOS app.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- InCrowd today announced the release of InCrowd Peer2Peer. InCrowd Peer2Peer enables physicians to query their colleagues, receiving peer-generated responses in real time.
Sharing information is crucial in any professional setting, from casual exchanges at the water-cooler or over lunch, to networking at professional conferences and online. When InCrowd asked 200 randomly sampled physicians, "What do you consider to be the best place on the web to discuss medical topics and share information with your colleagues?" Most responded website sites like Sermo or Doximity but mentioned that either the forum was not organized resulting in poor quality response or that it wasn't blinded and thus presented potential issues for their practice. Additionally, some 25% answered that they were unsure and that they have not found one yet.
InCrowd developed Peer2Peer to give physicians a secure, compliant place to ask questions of their colleagues. Conveniently included in the InCrowd Answers iOS app, it lets physicians send open-ended questions to other physicians who share their specialty in a confidential and double-blinded manner.
"InCrowd is changing the way the pharmaceutical industry interacts with physicians and other health care professionals to gather primary data. Enabling our Crowd to query each other was a natural progression," said Janet Kosloff, CEO and Co-Founder of InCrowd. " When physicians have questions they often don't have a secure place to comfortably and quickly ask it of their peers. We're delighted to provide them with a secure environment where they can poll their trusted colleagues in real time."
To participate in InCrowd Peer2Peer, physicians can download the iOS application from the Apple App Store and register with InCrowd through the app. US Physicians who pass InCrowd's personal and professional validation can then start querying their peers in addition to completing healthcare related micro-survey's for which they will receive paid honorarium.
InCrowd's on-demand platform provides direct and immediate access to Crowds of screened and targeted healthcare professionals. Crowd queries are fast, easy and specialized for the healthcare industry. Micro surveys facilitate fast response rates, while specialized crowdsourcing provides answers within hours, even minutes. InCrowd is the only company offering healthcare focused real time market research. For more information, visit InCrowd, Inc.
