A recent infographic in the Medical Marketing & Media magazine highlights the value of point of care marketing.
Medical models are a crucial part of advertising and educating in the exam room, doctor's office, or waiting room.
They invite patients and doctors to pick them up and engage with them in a way that is impossible with a poster or flat screen. The infographic, prepared by Kantar Media for the Point of Care Communications Council, presents some outrageous data that should have all pharmaceutical and medical device companies take note.
