M3's Tokyo office - OPEN for business
M3's office in Tokyo is fresh off Golden Week holidays and back to full strength after the recent earthquake and resulting tsunami. To help the relief efforts, M3 allowed physicians to donate honoraria and our 300 employees worldwide to donate paychecks. We raised and donated over $1,000,000 to the American, EU, and Japanese Red Cross to help the relief efforts.

CASRO Updates Legislative Tracking Report
An industry update on Physician Compensation Legislation was posted by CASRO for members. Click here to review the pending legislation state by state. M3 Global has been working with the industry associations to lobby in Vermont, Maine, and the District of Columbia to overturn the reporting requirements which has entangled market research. As a precaution for our clients we do not pull sample from these areas unless specifically requested due to the potential reporting requirement. M3 Global, a SOX compliant company audited annually by PriceWaterhouse Coopers, has always followed Federal IRS rules to report any payments aggregated over $600 on a 1099 form for contracted compensation.
Research shows Physicians Considering Leaving Primary Care
M3 Global Research's annual survey of 3729 primary care physicians found that 40.3 percent considered leaving their primary care practices this year, with 16.5 percent reporting that 2010 was the first year they had considered such a career change. Only 15.6 percent hold out hope of 2011 being a better than average year for their personal income, with 17.7 percent forecasting 2011 to be one of the worst earning years of their career. The survey also shows only three out of five physicians enjoying better job satisfaction than they anticipated on their first day in medical school.

A Look Ahead
The Market Research Association Annual Conference will be held in M3 USA's hometown of Washington DC June 6-8. Look for events sponsored by M3 Global Research near the Omni Hotel.
The US Supreme Court is expected to rule in June on whether attempts by the state of Vermont to block the use of physician prescribing data for marketing purposes is a restriction of free speech. The disputed law does not ban companies from collecting information about the prescribing habits of physicians but prevents them from selling it on to pharmaceutical manufacturers for the purposes of marketing new drugs to doctors – unless the doctor consents to having their information used in that capacity.
