KS&R, Inc. announced it has recently acquired Delta Marketing Dynamics (DMD), a market leader in healthcare insights focused on the pharmacy channel, including the growing area of specialty pharmaceuticals. This acquisition of DMD broadens KS&Rís experience and resources in the healthcare industry and expands the analytical and support resources available to clients.
"We are very excited by the opportunities this acquisition offers," said KS&R President and Chairman of the Board, Rita L. Reicher, PhD. "This combination of resources from two highly-respected and longstanding market research firms, both headquartered in Syracuse, is a natural. DMD's pharmaceutical expertise expands KS&R's already strong suite of healthcare-related services." Former DMD owner, Bill Little, noted how pleased he is that this change in ownership results in a smooth transition for DMD clients and staff.
KS&R currently provides services to the healthcare industry, typically through doctor/patient listening techniques and other means of gaining qualitative and quantitative insights from physician and patient populations. "The addition of DMD provides KS&R with the opportunity to provide clients with comprehensive insights through the entire patient journey, from patient/physician interaction through delivery of medications and post-care," said Lucinda Burch, KS&R Vice President & Principal leading much of KS&Rís healthcare practice.
