SERMO is the leading global social network for physicians – the world’s largest virtual doctors’ lounge, where hundreds of thousands of fully verified and licensed global physicians anonymously talk real-world medicine, collectively solve cases, respond to healthcare polls, and earn honorarium from surveys.
In 17 years, SERMO has grown from a team of five to the largest healthcare data collection company in the world, conducting 700,000 surveys per year. The SERMO research network is comprised of 1.8 million HCPs from over 80 countries, and includes 40 percent of the U.S. physician population. We continuously engage with our members to gather rich profiling data, which helps target the right HCPs for each project. Most of our survey work is conducted with specialist physicians – in fact, over 70 percent of our physician members are specialists.
They are part of the world’s largest social network for physicians, a powerful community where doctors connect and talk about real world medicine. SERMO helps doctors work in teams across the country and around the world. It’s the meeting of medical minds and hearts. On SERMO, doctors want to be heard – their engagement leads to more interest in market research and thus higher response rates.

Sometimes selecting physicians by the specialty they treat isn’t specific enough. Consider looking for oncologists who treat breast cancer: previously you could only target by specialty, but oncologist respondents may not be treating breast cancer. With RealTime, you can target by physician specialty and ensure your respondents are actively seeing patients for specific conditions. This means more relevant respondents and higher data quality. Choose from up to 200 disease states, and we plan to add more in the future.
120+ global companies across the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Advertising, Public Relations, Financial, Market Research, and Consulting verticals currently leverage RealTime.
An HCP PULSE is a mini survey supporting up to ten flexible questions, which delivers real-time responses from a targeted audience of SERMO’s global community of healthcare professionals. You can target respondents by country, specialty, condition, client-supplied list, or custom-created lists.
Clients that subscribe to RealTime are provided access to a select number of users, which varies based on the subscription. Each individual user is provided a unique username and password. RealTime allows users to create an HCP PULSE and track PULSES in real time.
RealTime delivers onsite feasibility calculation to provide insight into how many respondents can be expected within 24 hours, 48 hours, or 5 days based on the number and types of questions being asked, and the target audience. The majority of PULSES close in under 24 hours.
HCP PULSE data can be accessed in real-time from the client dashboard in Excel and PowerPoint formats, and from our robust onsite analytics tool.
You can upload your own target list that will match against SERMO's global networked community during the PULSE creation process.
A range of subscription and pay-as-you-go options are available to meet all needs.
