The challenge

A global financial services firm considering investing in a drug for septic shock asked to support them with their due diligence. 

They needed us to facilitate tele-depth interviews (12 participants) and quantitative online surveys (50 respondents) with US-based physicians in intensive care units, familiar with the above drug and experienced in treating septic shock. 


The solution

Unlike other vendors who rely on static panels and closed-loop networks, our AI search technology rapidly finds experts based on specific project requirements with pinpoint precision. 

It sifts through and analyzes billions of online data points worldwide, 24 hours a day, to produce accurate, comprehensive expert profiles at a much higher volume, speed, and accuracy than traditional human search methods. 

This ensures that we identify experts that other vendors can’t and that we connect our customers with the experts of today, not yesterday. 

Powered by advanced machine learning techniques, our AI identified the precise intensivists the customer needed for their due diligence, ensuring they got the domain-specific insights they sought. 


The outcome

Following the 50 survey responses and 12 tele-depth interviews, the customer swiftly developed a better understanding of physicians’ perception and uptake of the drug, and the treatment paradigm and potential shift in the clinical management of septic shock patients. 

Therefore, enabling them to make a better-informed decision on their investment. 

Some of the physicians the customer engaged with were:
