WASHINGTON -- March 5, 2013

M3 USA (www.usa.m3.com) presented new data from its CompleteSpecialist series
of syndicated market research at the 12thannual ePharma Summit in New York
City. The detailed syndicated market research study explores how physician
specialists communicate with each of their practice audiences: patients,
peers, payers and pharmaceutical companies. The report also details and the
respective value and influence specialists ascribe to each type of channel. It
is the only study of its kind to date, and it breaks new ground in
understanding communication and promotion to the specialties that it covers.

PatientsMap, a large study developed by SSRI in partnership with M3,
demonstrates how physicians treat disease and interact with pharmaceutical
companies. PatientsMap extracts its data via a web-survey with over 6,000 US
physicians covering more than 380 diseases.

At the conference, Jack Bilson, VP of Product Development & Innovation, shared
key findings and analysis in his presentation, What you Know and What is True
About Physician Behavior, Communication and Preferences: An Analysis of
Pharmaceutical's Prognosis of Influence in the Medical World.

“In leveraging the valued insights from multiple sources within the M3 family
we have uncovered some new perspectives. This new data both reinforces and at
times challenges conventional wisdom about the communication behavior and
habits of physicians,” says Bilson.

The data that will be presented contains a breakdown of each included
specialist’s most respected pharmaceutical sales forces and other valuable
information on their digital and real world communication preferences of
physicians. As an example the most respected sales forces according to
Rheumatologists is as follows:
