What captures HCPs’ interest?

This is a common question we receive from our clients. As a publishing partner to numerous prestigious medical associations, reaching over 850,000 HCPs each day, we have a wealth of data on what content engages HCPs. So, we decided to take a fresh look at what stories generated the most clicks since the beginning of the year among the below specialty groups.

What patterns emerged?

  • First, COVID is no longer the key topic of focus. COVID dominated the consumer and HCP news cycle throughout 2020 and much of 2021. Now, two years into the pandemic, we are seeing HCP content consumption habits have shifted back to a state more akin to the time before the pandemic began for most specialists. However, within the specialties we analyzed, pediatricians remain focused on COVID news. This may be due to children’s unique vulnerability to infectious diseases among the patient population as well as the ongoing vaccine approval processes for children.
  • Second, specialty HCP audiences are keen on specific news. This has been a tried-and-true theme throughout the years. Specialist HCP groups are engaging with very specific content that is germane to their specialty. This demonstrates their hunger for relevant, useful clinical information that will help them make the best treatment decisions on a day-to-day basis.
  • Finally, broad HCP audiences are interested in a wide variety of topics. Groups such as the American Medical Association span the gamut of medical specialties, resulting in a wide variety of topics of interest. Overall, we’ve found news articles covering topics that touch on a common denominator across these HCP groups are what generate the most interest.
