MedEd Event History Analytic Subject Area


This subject area is available only in Oracle CRM On Demand Life Sciences Edition.

Business Purpose

A MedEd event can be any type of promotional or education event that is attended by physicians or medical professionals. From a company's perspective, the following are the MedEd event types:

  • Sales Representative Level. Executed by a manager or one or more sales representatives.
  • Corporate or National Level. A national training event or meeting targeted at a specific group of medical professionals.

You can plan events at the national level for either a specific product or period and then allocate resources by region, district, or sales representative. Pharmaceutical companies require metrics and information about medical events to align sales and marketing activities. From a compliance perspective, reports provide information to companies, so that companies can control their budgets and ensure that there is little or no deviation.
