Healthcare Research

Ekas has been conducting research with healthcare professionals and their patients for over 30 years. Our experience and expertise in the healthcare segment in Australia and New Zealand is second to none.

Healthcare Professionals
This experience comes backed with our panel of healthcare professionals with over 40,000 members such as doctors (GPs, specialists & surgeons), nurses, pharmacists, dentists, veterinarians, hospital administrators, paramedics, podiatrists, lab/imaging technicians and directors, practice managers, medical receptionists, procurement officers, hospital CEOs and directors, dieticians, osteopaths, chiropractors and many more.

Over the years we have built a strong rapport with our members built on trust for; on time and fair payments, well designed surveys and studies, and on the spot phone access to technical and questionnaire support. This important relationship with our members has led to Ekas having a reputation of professionalism and conviction amongst the healthcare community, enabling us to maintain high membership engagement, growth and quick response time to our study invitations.

 

Patient Groups
We have a successful proven track record in recruiting respondents for research in the following areas- Diabetes, HIV, Prostate Cancer, Melanoma, Erectile Dysfunction, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, Addictions, Alzheimer’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Incontinence, Impotence, Psoriasis, Sex Hormone disorders and many more.

Our patient panel has been carefully built by including a wide range of sufferers and carers who are enthusiastic about contributing to research for the purposes of voicing their situation and having the opportunity to find out about new treatments/services. Our patients are not a subsection of a consumer panel, we have built a platform specifically tailored to their needs and interests. We have recruited our members over the years with help from our medical professionals on our healthcare panel and a variety of support groups ensuring we have verified members who are not 'groupies' or over stimulated, we only contact them for research related specifically to their condition.

Regardless if your target sample numbers are readily on our panel or not we have decades of experience in recruiting patients using a variety of trusted resources, patient support groups, health care professionals etc. all of which we have worked hard on building a strong relationship with.

 

Our Team
Our interviewers, scriptwriters, coders, analysts and project managers have all been specifically trained in healthcare research (including adverse event management) and have extensive experience in this form of research and therefore are familiar with the technical / specialist terms, medications and treatments often referred to within healthcare research questionnaires.

Our account managers also have gained vast experience in designing healthcare sample sizes, quotas and methodologies in conjunction with clients. So right from the quoting stage we can provide you with very useful information about the unique groups of professionals and sufferers in Australia and New Zealand to ensure your research design is aligned with the population and culture that you are researching.
