Focus Groups & Interviews

Focus groups and interviews provide critical, direct end-user input regarding clinical needs and preferences. Health Research International�s more than 30 years of experience can support you through the process, optimizing the quality and quantity of information obtained. Our standard methodology encompasses:
  • Initial consultation with clinical and technical experts to ensure a solid understanding of the area being studied. 
  • Antiseptic recruitment of participants according to specific practice and personal characteristics, i.e., we do not use the same physician panels for our focus groups and interviews.
  • Expert site and participant selection to target the broadest sample of end users of specific interest to the client.
  • Expert script preparation, detailing the issues required by the client in a manner that encourages �real�, in-depth responses.
  • Expert focus group moderation and interview skills that ensure full participation and adherence to the script but also the ability to immediately recognize and explore critical but unanticipated issues.
  • With participant permission, documentation of focus groups and interviews to provide our clients with a tool for review and additional study.
  • Meticulous analysis of the focus group or interview results, presented in a detailed written report complete with charts and graphics.
  • Efficient project turnaround and cost effective pricing to allow even small companies undertake this critical primary research .
