Our Services

Results. Focused.

Qessential Research uses a sophisticated approach to finding the exact insights our clients need to drive their medical technology, pharmaceutical, and life science businesses. We call this methodology Market Wisdom.

Market Wisdom allows us to pinpoint and recruit the best healthcare thought leaders who have the knowledge we desire. It also helps us analyze this complex information quickly and focus on the most actionable information, which lets us lead our clients to make smarter business decisions.


The combined forces of our Adaptive Recruitment team and our Observant Research team deliver Market Wisdom level results every day.

The Qessential Adaptive Recruitment team finds the right market research respondents for your study using our flexible recruiting process and Q-Select, one of the most comprehensive health care provider expert networks in existence.




Our network includes two million U.S. healthcare providers, administrators, and allied health professionals across dozens of specialties and sub-specialties.

Clients have selected our network of experts over other sample sources because of our high quality. We have custom-built our network over more than 20 years, which has allowed us to develop relationships with them. Many do not participate in market research studies outside of Qessential. In fact, 50% of our study respondents do not belong to any panel, making our sample frame much larger than the competition.




Additionally, our deep understanding of the way these healthcare experts think, behave, and respond allows us to guide our clients to sample markets more effectively and successfully accomplish their market research goals where others often fail.

Custom-Selected Respondents

Every one of our projects is custom-built. That allows us to work hand-in-hand with clients to find the exact experts needed for every phase of research.

  • We work with clients to develop a screener which will identify the ideal respondents for the specific study

  • All potential respondents are screened by members of the Qessential team, and screener data is assessed in real time to ensure qualification and quota requirements

  • Our recruitment process is opt-out rather than opt-in, which allows us to reach out to everyone in a particular specialty or market segment instead of just a limited sample

  • Throughout the recruitment process, clients receive regular progress updates, including screener data for all respondents

  • This high-service process is so powerful that many other research firms come to Qessential when their projects require solid, defensible samples
