Specific information includes total number of company sales representatives deployed by sales groups including primary care and hospital/specialty, number of sales representatives by therapeutic area, number of sales representatives (FTEs) supporting individual brands.

PharmaForce’s global database of pharmaceutical industry contacts exceeds 50,000.
Markets worldwide are continuously monitored. The database is updated when solid information is obtained and verified throughout the year. Our analysts check for updates for each company at least once per quarter.

The Deployment Analyzer does provide historical data capabilities. European historical data is available starting in 2007. Japanese historical data is available starting in 2009 and U.S. historical data is available starting in 2008.
The following are covered: anti-infectives (includes antibiotics, anti-fungals, and anti-virals); cardiovascular; CNS, pain and anesthesia; dermatology; endocrinology and metabolic disorders; gastrointestinal; gynecology/women’s health; nephrology and transplantation; oncology and hematology; ophthalmology; respiratory and allergy; rheumatology, bone and inflammation; urology; vaccines; and others on request.

PC = Primary Care. All sales forces that primarily promote brands to primary care healthcare providers (HCPs) are included under the Primary Care (PC) classification. This includes sales forces that call on specialty HCPs – as long as the majority of calls are targeted at primary care HCPs. For example: PC-1767 means promotion through 1,767 primary care FTEs (Full-time equivalents/sales representatives.)
Sp = Specialty Care. All sales forces that primarily promote brands to hospital-based or specialty HCPs are included under the Specialty Care classification. This includes sales forces that call on hospital-based and specialty as well as primary care HCPs as long as the majority of calls are targeted at hospital-based or specialty HCPs. For example, Sp means promotion through 204 Sp FTEs (Full-time Equivalents/Sales representatives).
The number of Healthcare Professionals on each sales representative call target list.
The ratio shows number of Primary Care HCPs versus number of Specialty HCPs each sales representative calls on.
The total number of calls per quarter that each sales representative makes (based on 60 working days per quarter).
The number of times per quarter that each sales representative calls on each HCP in each tier.
A Tier 1 physician is considered a prescriber with the highest potential to prescribe the target product. In some companies, this prescriber is described as a Decile 10 prescriber.
