So, according to the survey, over the past 2 years there has been an increase in the popularity of such resources by 50%. At the same time, the growth of supply in this segment of the information services market does not keep pace with the increase in demand for educational programs for doctors. In particular, 94% of respondents noted that they would like to participate in more educational programs, and 30% reported that it is the lack of a sufficient number of such projects that prevents meeting demand.
