The report also highlights:

Internet penetration among physicians in France grew from 69% to 79% between 2001 and 2002; consumer Internet penetration has also grown substantially to 67%. This increase highlights an expanding online audience to whom pharmaceutical companies can provide health information and services online.

Access to health-related expert opinion online is one of the most utilized services among surveyed physicians in France. Seventy-two per cent of physicians have previously sought expert opinion online. This is far higher than the proportion of physicians that have used online physician forums; however, the demand for this

Service is very high.

The time that French physicians use the Internet for is limited due to hectic working patterns. For this reason, pharmaceutical companies need to be aware that in order to reach the increasing online population, the information and services that they provide must be user-friendly and easy for the audience to understand.
