One of the only reports on the market that tracks actual outcomes is the comScore Pharma Marketing series. The results from this sixth year show substantial improvement over previous years.

The core insight in these reports are the measurement of prescription lift that is shown in conjunction with the visiting of a branded pharmaceutical website. Now, purists (myself among them) will cry “correlation is not causation” which is true, but that’s not the whole story because it is a prerequisite. Edward Tufte said it best with his version: “Correlation is not causation but it sure is a hint.”

If you’re impatient (and know what TL;DR means) then here is the core data:
