Only Trinity’s experts can provide a transparent, tailored approach across qual, quant, integrated data streams, deliverables and support. We leverage a comprehensive, holistic toolkit that can be integrated across our COEs—from Patient Centricity to Performance Tracking.
We are our clients’ partners. We are commercial and clinical experts across therapeutic areas globally.
We have been in the trenches.
Throughout the research process, we offer unbiased, critical thinking with courage and integrity. We challenge our clients with what they need to hear.
And we do this using a high-touch, boutique model.
Our clients receive white-glove treatment with the breadth and depth of support necessary to execute and pull through at scale.
The ultimate goal of Market Research is to inform the strategy and tactics at each stage of the brand planning process—from supporting development of a launch plan to managing the brand’s entire life cycle. Our capabilities range from qualitative in-depth interviews to multivariate quantitative studies with physicians, patients, payers and other critical stakeholders in the healthcare space.
Trinity uses a set of multivariate tools, including patient simulation, discrete choice and predictive modeling. By combining the best mix of research techniques, we can uncover not only what will happen in the future but also the factors that drive that outcome.
We have considerable expertise in conducting strategic market research that includes demand, segmentation, pricing, patient journey and performance tracking studies—to support all stages of the brand life cycle. And we can deliver market research initiatives either as a standalone or as part of a larger consulting engagement.
Trinity’s original brand was built on developing accurate forecasts and leveraging optimized demand research to ensure those forecasts have the evidence needed to support them. Trinity has grown significantly, but our focus and dedication to perfecting demand research has never wavered.
At Trinity, Demand Research is focused on identifying expected opportunities for brands and/or novel assets by measuring expected utilization and answering the key what, where and why questions from our clients.
Trinity uses Patient Simulation to better model and explain prescribing behavior in a simple, realistic task that produces more accurate outcomes compared to traditional allocation methodologies. Post-hoc analyses of demand work performed by Trinity can lead to forecasts that net to within 2 points of actuals over a 5-year period.
Demand research is one of the most frequently completed pieces of market research conducted by Trinity year after year.
Trinity’s Segmentation engagements are built to the key needs of each brand involved; across engagements, the core philosophy remains consistent. Trinity believes that successful segmentations allow brands to more effectively target key physicians and prioritize resources for the maximum impact.
Trinity recognizes that markets are diverse. Customers are driven by myriad subtle factors: underlying values, attitudes, clinical convictions, external stimuli, aspirations and emotions. Our teams reflect this multi-faceted and complex nature of decision-making. Segmentation projects at Trinity incorporate multi-disciplinary teams. Qualitative and quantitative market researchers, statisticians and strategists come together to design thoughtful instruments to capture the full gamut of diversity in the marketplace – be it in market preferences, psychology, attitudes or behavior.
We have completed and helped to implement more than 50 segmentations over the past 5 years across both large and small pharma and biopharma clients and in a wide variety of therapeutic areas including oncology, hematology, diabetes, pulmonary diseases, neurology, medical devices and even rare or orphan diseases.
Patients remain at the core of all activity at Trinity. Whether understanding how various assets can produce life-saving innovations for patients or developing roadmaps to maximize the value of clients’ products in the minds of physicians and patients, we are constantly thinking about how to improve patient lives. Patient Journey at Trinity epitomizes our dedication to advancing the interests of patients by generating and mining patient-level data to paint a holistic picture of the patient journey – identifying key leverage points and areas of improvement along the way.
Each patient’s journey is unique; however, trends and patterns can inform strategy moving forward. Trinity’s Patient Journey approach combines the power of secondary data (claims, EMR or practice-level datasets) with the context of primary research (qualitative and/or chart-based quantitative) to generate an accurate, current representation of the patient population with insights needed to optimize commercial strategy. Each project culminates in a poster-ready, visual flow of the patient journey, complete with quantified unique nodes of interaction and potential for leverage.
Trinity has developed a Patient Centricity Center of Excellence, striving to be a true leader in the space.
Trinity Pricing studies are designed to derive the optimal pricing and contracting strategies for brands that enable a balance of revenue, access and risk.
Trinity seeks to maximize the revenue potential for our clients in setting prices for novel therapies. Trinity Pricing studies take into consideration the value proposition of a novel drug or therapy, the commercial strategies of the company and the environmental context—and then test all of these against reactions from key stakeholders including payers, physicians and patients.
Trinity Market Research, in combination with our dedicated team of Pricing & Access experts, has completed Pricing studies across a variety of therapeutic areas including oncology, CNS/Psychiatry, diabetes, infectious diseases, neurology and orphan diseases.
Trinity works to ensure final promotional materials maximize persuasiveness and motivate physicians to prescribe our clients’ products. Throughout the process of bringing promotional materials to market, Trinity can add value. From value-proposition development through positioning, messaging, concept testing and final collateral materials testing, Trinity can help to optimize the impact and resonance of promotional materials.
A blend of qualitative and quantitative research techniques provides a comprehensive assessment of a product’s promotional materials by supplementing rigorous quantitative data with rich physician perspective and verbatims. Trinity’s research dives deep into how physicians are interpreting each option, as well as the drivers behind preference. Trinity has completed engagements focused on promotional materials generation and refinement across all phases of development.
Marketing and Brand leaders need a steady stream of actionable insight into the market their assets play in and the context around each product. Ensuring the best trajectory for a brand requires actionable insights beyond the simple ATU (Awareness, Trial and Usage) approach of tracking the market.
Trinity’s Performance Tracking COE provides dynamic, diagnostic tools guided by dedicated experts with experience across therapy areas, geographies and stakeholders.
