What information do you collect upon registration to your community?

To participate in MedPanel’s market research opportunities, you will be asked for personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, and medical license number. We will use this information to contact you, as well as use the address you provide to pay you for your participation. You will also be asked to provide information about your credentials, specialty and academic affiliation. By filling out the registration in full, you will help us determine which projects are most applicable for your participation, and you will likely to be contacted more frequently.

How will I be chosen to participate?

Once you are in our network you will receive invitations to surveys and other market research engagements that may be relevant to your expertise. Participation in each individual study is voluntary and you are never under any obligation to participate.

Selection of participants is contingent upon our research sponsors’ requirements, which are based on specific criteria for each study. Although we will invite members of our community to participate in projects based on the information you provide us at registration, we have a short screening process at the beginning of the project before inviting those who are best suited to the actual study.

When I receive an invitation, how quickly should I respond if I wish to participate?

Our studies are usually open for up to 7 days, but to ensure participation in our studies, it is best to respond within the first 24-48 hours of receiving an invitation.

Will my personal identifiable information (PIA) be revealed to anyone outside of MedPanel?

Your personally identifiable information will never be revealed without your written permission. The information we provide clients from surveys is provided in aggregate; thus, your answers are not tied to your identity. We carefully follow the market research code of ethics outlined by well-respected market research authorities that provide clear guidelines for collecting personally identifiable information and market research data.

Who are MedPanel’s clients and how is the data used?

MedPanel works with biopharmaceutical, device, and diagnostic companies as well as financial groups, advertising agencies, public relations, and major health publishers who are seeking expert opinions from healthcare professionals and patients. The data you provide can be used to help clients determine how to market a new drug, to assess images for an advertising campaign, or to understand how a drug might be used “off label.” MedPanel’s data is safely stored on our proprietary servers.

How will I be paid?

The honorarium you will be offered is based on the length and complexity of the engagement. You will be paid approximately 8 weeks after the close of the study. You will be paid in the currency of your country unless otherwise requested by you. In the United States, you will be issued a Form 1099 if your cumulative payments amount to $600 or more over the course of the 12 month tax year beginning January 1st. MedPanel is not responsible for any taxes and cannot provide you with tax advice. A list of the honoraria you receive from MedPanel is listed on your profile page. If MedPanel suspects fraud, we can cancel your honorarium payment at any time.

How is my name and occupation verified by MedPanel?

MedPanel employs several measures and proprietary systems whereby we can verify the information you provide us to ensure its accuracy. These systems include verifying your IP address and medical license numbers, as well as using a number of other publicly-available data sources to verify and identify our experts. We employ these measures to protect the integrity of our data and reduce fraud. If we find that your registration is not accurately represented, we reserve the right to remove you from the community.

How can I unsubscribe from the database?

If you decide to unsubscribe you can call MedPanel at (617)-532-5700, send a fax to (617)-532-5799, or send an email to support@medpanel.com and put the word “unsubscribe” in the subject line.
