Deerfield Institute believes that market research is a valuable resource to the growing healthcare industry. A critical component of this research is assuring respondents that their information is being used properly and within standard industry guidelines. Individual responses from any market research effort are kept confidential and are reported without individual identifying information. During our research process, we collect, aggregate, and analyze information from respondents in various healthcare-related fields. We then prepare reports based on these answers for the purposes of understanding market level dynamics.
When participating in Deerfield Institute market research, respondents may be asked to provide personally identifiable information (such as name, email, and mailing address). This information will only be used to provide respondents with services or information that they have requested. When preparing reports or analyzing the results of our market research, personally identifiable information is always removed and will not be given or sold to a third party without the respondent’s consent.
All Deerfield Institute research is conducted in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and guidelines set forth by the Council of American Survey Research Organizations.
