Our Approach

We believe in deep engagement with our clients, both providers and industry. Methodologies include financial and secondary data analysis, an annual quantitative survey with oncology pharmacists & medical oncologists who have managerial responsibilities, and deep qualitative follow-up including one-on-one interviews, site visits, and online focus groups.

Proximity also gains valuable, real-world insights from our strategic work with our pro-bono oncology group practice regarding the current business environment, as well as the potential impact of alternative payment models on their practice.

Finally, all of our work is vetted by the entire Proximity Health team and by our Principal, Lee Blansett, and by an advisory board of health care professionals, all of whom bring executive experience in provider organizations and manufacturers.

We help you better understand this critical customer segment through a combination of primary research with community oncologists and secondary research covering the latest community trends..
