The M3 Difference
Thought Leadership

We are committed to leading the industry with data-driven opinion, investing in primary market research to inform and educate our stakeholders. We regularly present at international conferences, have research published in peer-reviewed journals, and in 2021 were highly commended for two BHBIA BOBI awards (Best Customer Insight, Creative Fieldwork Team of the Year).


Our proprietary provider panel of verified healthcare professionals is the world’s largest. In collaboration with our trusted network of partners we deliver robust quantitative and qualitative research projects in over 70 markets. Our patient panel covers over 130 conditions, giving our clients access to a highly engaged community eager to share their opinions and inform healthcare transformation. Together with M3 Group companies including QQFS, and m360 Research, we offer a physical presence and proprietary panel in the Americas, APAC, and Europe, including the largest domestic US healthcare panel.


Our focus on compliance has led to the award of the ISO 20252 standard, confirming our dedication to delivering high quality data which goes beyond basic guidelines. Privacy and data protection including obligations under the GDPR are key principles of this commitment.

Certified Quality

As part of the M3 group we operate with the transparency required of a publicly-traded company. We are audited annually by PwC, and are proud to hold ISO 27001 certification, evidencing our commitment to stringent information security. The scale of our proprietary panels reflects our commitment to quality; our outsourcing of completes is an industry-leading low of only 2%. This means that for 98% of our total completes, every single respondent is triple-verified, and highly engaged.
