Revolutionizing Pharmaceutical Market Research with Targeted, On-Demand Insights

In the healthcare industry, physicians and life science executives play very different roles. But they share one thing in common: They’re frustrated by traditional methods of insight generation.

The complex scheduling. The long waiting periods. The awkward dinners. In an era when technology has reinvented the way we connect with the world, the relationship between physicians and life sciences partners remains largely unchanged.

That’s why we founded KeyOps – to transform the way physicians interact with life science companies. Our innovative, digital-first approach to pharmaceutical market research removes the friction in these relationships, unlocking the immediate exchange of insights from a trusted healthcare expert network.

Our Mission

For life science partners, scheduling physician advisory board meetings are a challenge; opportunities to gather insights through ATU market research are infrequent; and the data they collect is often lacking. And from a physician’s perspective, the work and time commitment required to share their perspective often isn’t worth the hassle.

At KeyOps, our mission is to transform the relationship between physicians and life science companies – by creating an environment where strong, mutually beneficial partnerships are built.

Our Story

As physicians in Canada, Sam (Gastroenterologist) and Saeed (Cardiologist) were exhausted by typical life science market research engagements. Their lunches and evenings were overtaken by long meetings, and they struggled to maintain a work-life balance. This was exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, as they found themselves working longer hours and “Zoom fatigue” began to set in. In speaking with other physicians, they recognized they weren’t the only ones who were frustrated with how their time was being consumed.

From this observation, KeyOps was born. Our company was founded on taking a more physician-centric approach to engagement with life sciences partners. That meant less paperwork, more transparency, fair compensation, and quick engagements. It was created to help physicians make a bigger impact – by sharing their expertise in short bursts – while allowing life science companies to be more in tune with small market changes.

Today, the KeyOps network has grown to include thousands of healthcare professionals across the United States and Canada – who are trusted by the leading pharmaceutical and life science companies in North America.
