Frequently Asked Questions
What is a market research interview?
‘Interview’ is the term used for market research discussions; however, they are far from your typical formal job interview and definitely more enjoyable. During an interview, our clients might ask you to look at and handle a new medical device in development, like an inhaler, or maybe ‘walk’ your way through a website, giving your feedback on how it looks or feels. There are no right or wrong answers to any of the questions and all of your opinions are valid. Your feedback helps inform the design of healthcare products and services of the future, ensuring they are easy to use, safe, and effective for people with specific medical conditions. Please don’t be shy about sharing your views - they are a really important part of healthcare product development. You may be asked to handle a device containing medication, but never to take medication.
Where will my interview be held?
Your research interview is most likely to be held at a dedicated research venue known as a ‘viewing facility’, but sometimes we may ask permission for our client’s interviewer to visit you at home or a meeting place local to you. You might be invited to participate via telephone or an online meeting platform. The interview will usually be audio or video recorded so that it can be referred back to during analysis – but they will always get your permission first and tell you that this will happen when you are recruited.
Who do MediVoice recruit patients and healthcare professionals for?
We work with companies that develop medical devices, other healthcare products and medical services and are trying to ensure that these are the best that they can be before they are released onto the market.
What should I wear for my interview?
Our interviews have no dress code and are held in an informal setting, meaning you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Sometimes, we may advise you to wear trousers so that you can strap a dummy skin pad around your thigh to simulate an injection if the research calls for it, but we will always let you know if we need you to wear something specific.
Can I tell people about my interview?
Unfortunately, you can’t tell anybody about the content of your interview. Most interviews must remain confidential and we will normally ask you to sign a confidentiality agreement before the interview starts. This is because some of the information in the interview might be commercially sensitive, or because we do not want any other participants to be influenced prior to their own interview. Your personal details also remain confidential and are never passed to anybody else (including our clients). However, we would encourage you to tell your friends/family about your experience of research in the hope that they may take part in the future.
Why take part in market research?
Research offers a range of benefits to both HCPs (Healthcare Professionals) and patients willing to share their experiences, knowledge and expertise. Whether through participation in an online survey, or a group discussion, those taking part in research have the opportunity to influence the development of medical devices, products, services and therapies, changing the healthcare landscape for the better.
In addition to this, those taking part in research enjoy the opportunity to speak out and offer their unique perspectives on life-changing conditions and treatments in a safe, non-judgemental space, meet like-minded people, contribute to the improvement of new treatments and devices, all whilst being compensated for their time and contributions.
Is medical research paid?
Globally speaking, not all research is paid. The compensation received for the completion of a survey, interview or other task can vary greatly depending on the researcher or agency managing the study, with some covering additional expenses (such as travel or accommodation) required, some offering direct payment (this may be set, or per hour), and others offering payments to charity.
MediVoice Recruit highly values the time and effort devoted by our respondents. For this reason, we deliver fair compensation to all participants, whether through direct payment, an incentive or a donation to a charity or support group. This may vary according to the study selected - visit our current studies page to learn more.
How can I sign up for market research?
The sign-up process for healthcare research varies according to its organiser. Typically, applicants are asked to sign up to either an agency, or individual study online, and must take a screening survey in order to determine whether or not they’re a good fit for the panel or study. This screening questionnaire may work to determine specific conditions or align respondents with studies most suited to their characteristics. Often, following this survey, applicants will be interviewed over the phone in order to verify their answers to the screening questionnaire, and to ultimately determine their profile.
If all requirements are met, the respondent may then proceed to participate in the survey - or in the case of applying for a panel, join. Panel members may be contacted in the future with relevant opportunities.

Who can take part in medical market research?
MediVoice Recruit seeks respondents identifying with a number of categories, but primarily works with: patients, and HCPs (healthcare professionals) and even healthy volunteers. Patients are often required to have specific medical conditions or be prescribed a specific treatment, whilst healthcare professionals may need to be involved in the process of treating certain conditions or prescribing or handling medical devices. HCPs may include general practitioners, physicians such as surgeons and anaesthetists, and nurses, amongst a large number of qualifying positions. Carers are often also considered to be valuable respondents to studies shaping the future of medical devices. In addition, we sometimes need the help of other healthcare stakeholders such as healthcare system procurement professionals, hospital managers or medical engineers.
MediVoice Recruit recruits for a wide variety of fully compensated and exciting healthcare research studies and is always seeking new respondents. Looking to learn more? Visit our patient and HCP pages to find out more about taking part.
What does healthcare research do?
Healthcare research works primarily to help positively shape and drive devices,services and treatment, improving the health and symptoms of people across the globe.
Healthcare research is an essential factor in all stages of the production of effective medical devices and products, with the HF stage proving particularly critical for obtaining market approval. In addition, further qualitative and quantitative research can provide data used to support further planning and decisions. From helping manufacturers identify which areas of their product perform well in a daily setting to identifying likely users, research is imperative to success.
What is a patient?
MediVoice Recruit divides the healthcare research participants it recruits into two primary groups: healthcare professionals (HCPs), and those diagnosed with an ongoing health condition of any type. For brevity, we may refer to the latter group as ‘patients’ - but do understand that those living with such afflictions are much more than a name, number, or diagnosis. We also understand that a vast majority of our participants don’t have acute conditions, but equally, would not want to be considered as having a chronic disease.
Your opinions and unique insight matter to us. If you’ve been diagnosed with an ongoing health condition, we’d like to help you speak out about your healthcare needs, and ensure your opinions are used to improve future medical devices and healthcare treatments.
