Startup Hopes to Move Medical Sales Out of Physician Offices and Onto Social Networks

A Minnesota firm hopes to create a healthcare social network to host sales between hospital systems and vendors. Should be good news for everyone except the sales reps! Arundhati Parmar in MedCity News:

The startup may win some traction, since there’s increasing evidence that face-to-face medical sales jobs are slowly dying. A recent Wall Street Journal article noted how one in four physicians in 2010 refused to meet with a sales rep because they found office visits “intrusive and annoying.”
