Date:2/1/2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The integration of the iPad into the pharmaceutical industry has had a substantial impact on the sector's interactions with physicians and payers. The growth of tablet technology is rapidly transforming how field sales forces in the pharmaceutical industry communicate with physicians and payers.

While the implementation of the iPad has been rapid and exponential, effectively integrating iPads into the field requires significant planning and training to make the investment a success. A new benchmark study completed by research and consulting firm Best Practices, LLC uncovered strategies for measuring the effectiveness of the iPad as an inventive sales tool.

The 66-page report contains over 130 metrics and 41 narratives to provide biopharmaceutical leaders with an evidence-based understanding of how other companies in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries are attempting to align their resources and activities to ensure the continuity of their sales' processes.

Key Topics of this report include:
