Share of Scientific Voice Measures and Supports Success in Medical Affairs
A 2020 MAPS white paper highlights that while the metrics for departments such as R&D (new product approvals) and Commercial (sales) are clear, a single performance indicator that can measure the value of MA is lacking. While important metrics exist, such as time to publication submission and customer satisfaction, Share of Scientific Voice (SoSV) measures scientific impact and can serve as an objective and strategic performance metric for MA.
The measurement of SoSV is derived from the number of relevant mentions across scientific disseminations, relative to alternatives in the same therapeutic area. These clear outputs correlate with several activities that MA professionals lead across the MAPS-defined key pillars for MA – insights, evidence generation and evidence dissemination. This work is highly strategic and valuable for an organisation, as it shapes product strategy, closes data gaps, forms the scientific narrative and educates healthcare professionals. Therefore, SoSV provides a valuable metric for the performance and progress of MA.
This webinar will review the rationale for SoSV as a performance metric in MA, how it is implemented in practice, and examine how it can be used strategically to measure, prioritize and achieve success.
