PersonaSmart™

PersonaSmart is a model of human behavior based on a multilayered analysis of decision making. It goes well beyond “emotional driver” research or attitudinal analysis to apply a scientific and rigorous approach to understanding markets.

Within PersonaSmart we separate the elements of human decision making and tackle them logically, one by one:

  • Motivational Values – the fundamental needs of the personality that define personality types and have been validated on a global basis
  • Worldview – a slowly evolving idiosyncratic view of the world; how it works and how each individual can relate to it and get what they need from it
  • Heuristics (also known as Behavioral Economics) – algorithms and bias that we use to make decisions without engaging cognitive resources
  • Language – which develops and wraps itself around world view
  • Context – a major modifier of behaviors

We have developed a unique model of Motivational Values, Worldview and Heuristics; language and context need to be researched for each set of circumstances.

By engaging with us you can benefit from our research in this area, while saving time and money to achieve a deeper understanding of your customers, their unmet needs and their experience.

Contact us today for a presentation of the principles and case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of this unique methodology in practice.

Anthropology-Based Research

All forms of anthropological research including in-home, in-office, or in-hospital are conducted by Segmedica health experts. Our staff includes experienced sociologists and anthropologists as well as both clinical and academic psychology advisors. Some examples of Anthropological work include:

HealthVoice®

HealthVoice® is a technique involving audio-capture of real conversations between a HCP (healthcare provider) and a patient. These conversations may take place in a doctor’s office, a clinic, a hospital, or anywhere these interactions occur on a regular basis. The Segmedica Difference is our follow-up to these encounters, using both qualitative and quantitative methods to capture additional information about the patients and HCPs. We then analyze the words, phrases, and interviews using psycho-linguistic techniques in addition to identifying keywords and language patterns. The end result is a deep understanding of what was said and why it was said. All physicians are drawn from our HealthAcuity® panels and are fully practographically and psychologically profiled.

Your deliverables include full digital recordings and transcripts of all the conversations. Our research is fully HIPAA compliant and 100% quality controlled to ensure the accuracy and effectiveness of the conversations. Our objective is high-gain conversations that will have an impact on your marketing objectives.

SocialInsight™

More than the traditional “sentiment” monitors, SocialInsight combines data with personality. Segmedica is known for its psychological approach to market research. Now we apply this expertise to social media posts. Our technique is simple yet elegant. We monitor a multitude of social media sites and combine what is being said with why it is being said. Unlike the majority of social media monitors, Segmedica dives deep to uncover themes in conversational language, using psychology-based natural language analysis. Our skills range from simple search and analysis to combining SocialInsight with other modalities for a rich set of insights into consumers as patients. Our process tracks patients’ experience to compile a full story on what patients think and feel not only as patients but as consumer/patients. We deliver a full report analyzing language and conversations using our exclusive HLA (HealthLinquisticAnalysis)™ process.

SelfInspire®

SelfInspire® is a qualitative research method in which a dyad or group operates without a human moderator. Employed where there is a need to delve deeply into the psychological reasons for certain behaviors, it offers considerable research benefits including:

• More responsibility and energy from respondents
• Unlikely leaders emerge
• Language is more pure and meaningful
• Emotional insights are much deeper
• Unexpected ideas arise

The sessions are managed entirely by the respondents, who usually move through a series of tasks by sequentially opening numbered envelopes. The encounter is observed by a professionally trained researcher who will ensure the interaction meets its research objectives. What makes this research so powerful is the combination of unaided discussion, a non-threatening environment, and Segmedica’s use of psychology to help us understand not only what they are saying, but why they are saying it and how it impacts your markets. SelfInspire® is unique to Segmedica, an innovator in healthcare market research.

Ethnography

Ethnography is a technique which is used to observe behaviors in a natural setting such as a patient’s home or place of work. Our ethnography team consists of a trained observer and a videographer who are deployed to spend a day with the respondent and capture the nuances of everyday life as well as focus on issues that are germane to the research project. While in the field, our ethnographer will also conduct impromptu interviews as events occur that stimulate discussion relevant to the marketing objectives of our client. The result is a very deep understanding of how a patient or other respondent thinks, feels, and acts outside of a controlled environment like focus group facilities or telephone interviews.

Analytics

Segmedica offers a full range of analytical capabilities to help you meet your marketing needs. We work with you to choose the most appropriate methodology to answer your more pressing strategic and tactical questions.

Along with our expert research design, Segmedica offers:

  • Psycho-linguistic analysis – used for assessing dialogue, positioning statements, messaging, and other types of text. Segmedica can use this along with its proprietary PersonaSmart segmentation to understand linguistic differences among physician types. It can also be used to look at variations among consumer demographic groups and other consumer segments.
  • Positioning and market-size analysis – Segmedica uses multi-dimensional techniques such as mapping to show where your brand is positioned in the market relative to its competitors and where it needs to be for optimal positioning.
  • Conjoint Analysis – used for product/services development, customer acquisition/retention, and pricing studies.
  • Segmentation – Segmedica is a leader in medical market segmentation. All segmentation is customized to meet the specific needs of the project. Professor Rangaswamy, Anchel Professor of Marketing from Penn State Smeal College of Business, is a member of Our Team allowing us to use advanced mathematical segmentation techniques that are at the forefront of the industry in addition to offering standard segmentation approaches, including a priori segmentation.

Our analytics expertise…

  • Offers latent class segmentation, the most powerful statistical tool available, to segment your customers based on their needs.
  • Uses multi-level phasic questioning allowing a large number of variables to be included efficiently and cost-effectively.
  • Has advanced the practice of segmenting both physicians and patients together in a single project to better understand patient compliant behavior.

Customer Loyalty

One of the most significant challenges facing companies today is how to develop stronger customer commitment to their product or service.

Traditional satisfaction research focuses on how well the company performs across a range of areas including product performance, sales support, call center performance, etc. Segmedica goes one step further by applying its unique batteries of psychometric questions and images to better understand what drives customer satisfaction and how to leverage this to create strong customer commitment and loyalty.

Segmedica provides a wide range of tools to support your customer satisfaction program, from simple web-based surveys for tracking satisfaction to conducting more advanced needs-based research. Segmedica also offers robust customer satisfaction segmentation using a proprietary methodology grounded in psychology.

Insight Mining and Market Landscaping

At the earliest stages of a product or service, marketing teams need to become educated. One aspect of this education process is market research.

At the earliest stages of a product or service, marketing teams need to become educated. One aspect of this education process is market research. Landscaping, or Insight Mining research, is potentially the least focused and most exploratory research in the marketing process and is usually carried out qualitatively.

That being said, we still have a responsibility to develop a result that is accurate and informative and which has practical use to our clients.

We do this by laying down a solid psychology-based appreciation of the market and by focusing our research on thematic elements which have applicability to potential sales and marketing tactics.

For marketing teams entering completely new areas, our customized workshops provide a flying start.

Message Development and Testing

Just as with positioning, marketing teams have a choice in messaging between (1) developing internally and testing in the market through research and (2) or to using research techniques in which the respondents themselves help to build messaging. Either choice can be appropriate depending, on the circumstances.

For market-based message development, we offer a range of proprietary techniques, including Storyboarding and Envisioning, as well as conventional techniques such as projective exercises, forward and backwards translation, and laddering.

When it comes to message testing, we use techniques which conform closely to the way the brain works in forming long-term memories and attaching emotion to memories so that they are most relevant and easy to recall. Our understanding of modern neuroscience is deployed to ensure that message testing is relevant and meaningful and that it provides solid guidance.

Positioning

We offer a wide variety of positioning methodologies ranging from qualitative techniques in which respondents generate positioning elements to large-scale monadic quantitative positioning testing studies.

Like segmentation, positioning needs to be built on a solid appreciation of market needs, both rational and emotional. Positioning statements must speak to the fundamental needs of the market and include both rational and emotional selling points.

A key decision for a marketing team is whether to develop positioning internally and test it with the market or to let the market drive positioning through research. Either approach can be appropriate in different circumstances. We advise clients on the best use of research in either approach.

We psycho-profile all our respondents and ensure the emotional needs of the market are accommodated. The human brain processes information both intellectually and emotionally, and it is important that positioning and messaging satisfy both parts of the personality.

Product Development & Acquisition

In an increasingly competitive market, it is critically important that the right decisions be made from the beginning of the product or service life cycle.

Segmedica can help by providing a wide range of services to fit your needs, from a small-scale, web-based survey to full-scale market sizing. For product development, conjoint and other advanced analytics can be incorporated to help identify key product specifications or services that should be included and their expected impact on the market. Ethnographic services are also available to see how a product is actually being used or to assess performance. Segmedica’s psychometric profiling can add another unique dimension by identifying who is likely to be early adopters.

Psychology-Based Research

Segmedica is the leader in developing methods for applying psychology to market research. There is a fundamental difference between emotional and psychological research.

The diagram below illustrates how our brains work and how our subconscious minds drive behavior and decision-making.

Only psychology-based research uncovers the underlying personality of respondents that is critical to understanding not only what is being said, but more importantly, why and within what context.

Understanding the personality (which rarely changes in an individual throughout his or her life) allows for a much deeper understanding of what is needed and how to fulfill those needs. Emotions are superficial and transient, and research that is not scientifically based can lead to misguided marketing campaigns. Once you understand the psychological makeup of a target market, you can craft messages or define strategies to a much more effective level.

Segmedica is a leader in large- and small-scale segmentation. We are innovators in the techniques used, but more importantly, we are reliable guides and coaches through the process.

Segmentation needs to be founded on a solid marketing process; we ask the penetrating questions up front to ensure that your project goes well and produces an actionable result.

Our proprietary tools includes a cutting-edge, Needs-Based segmentation consisting of:

  • Proven batteries of psychometric questions and images.
  • Customizable segmentation software.
  • Multi-phasic questioning: a methodology for enabling us to manage large-choice models with relatively few questions and achieve sharper segmentation.
  • Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to enable us to combine qualitative and quantitative inputs as well segment non-homogeneous populations.
  • Methodologies for segmenting professionals and consumers together to add additional insights, especially around compliance.

Our segmentations result in rich, personality-based segment descriptions which bring the segments alive in a very real way and provide guidance for optimal positioning and communication.

Whether you need to segment professionals, providers, payers, or consumers, Segmedica is the logical choice.

Tracking

After launch, market tracking is most important to maintaining a window on the market and ensuring that perception is being built in the way the marketing team intends.

From small-scale pulse studies to full-scale regular tracking surveys, Segmedica uses its psychometric profiling of respondents to add a whole new and actionable level to routine tracking. By understanding the base psychology of respondents, we can better analyze changes in behaviors and, if unfavorable, suggest ways to modify them.

Psychology-Based Research

xsperient is the leader in developing methods for applying psychology to market research. There is a fundamental difference between emotional and psychological research.

The diagram below illustrates how our brains work and how our subconscious minds drive behavior and decision-making.

Only psychology-based research uncovers the underlying personality of respondents that is critical to understanding not only what is being said, but more importantly, why and within what context.

Understanding the personality (which rarely changes in an individual throughout his or her life) allows for a much deeper understanding of what is needed and how to fulfill those needs. Emotions are superficial and transient, and research that is not scientifically based can lead to misguided marketing campaigns. Once you understand the psychological makeup of a target market, you can craft messages or define strategies to a much more effective level.

Turbocharging Your Focus Groups

Peter Simpson

They have been around since 1926. They were adopted by the US military. One helped bring Apollo 13 home. Even Marxists have used them. Focus groups – they have been a staple for as long as any of us can remember. But do we use them appropriately, and can they be turbocharged?

Using Social Psychology, Anthropology, and Language Studies in Global Positioning and Messaging Development

Peter Simpson

North American and European companies tend to employ Anglo-European-Centric thinking and language to develop positioning and then “test” it as widely as they can afford. Often this testing is constructed on the basis of selecting a preferred message. In this session, we argue for an approach which builds local positioning and messaging within a global concept which will optimally connect with each cultural market…

All One Life – Consumer Nutrition, Health, and Personal Care Decisions Have One Set of Drivers

Peter Simpson

Health and wellness stretch across many industry verticals from pharma to alternative therapies, from nutrition to telepsychiatry, from massage studios to retail pharmacies. While we all think in terms of different industries with different characteristics and needs, consumers do not think like that at all. They think of their lives as a whole. They think of prescription drugs and surgeries as being on a continuum with healthy eating and taking supplements…

Peter Simpson

Receiving and absorbing a message or concept is a process of learning. The mission of a message is to be understood and committed to long-term memory so it is recalled when purchase or usage decisions are being made and influences choices.

The Neuroscience of Creating Lasting Messages

Peter Simpson

The first duty of a message is to create a lasting memory. No matter how impactful the message is at delivery, without creating a recallable memory, it isn’t effective.

What's New - Segmedica News & Innovation

xsperient | Segmedica announced today the completion of a third syndicated COVID-19 study. In this report our PersonaSmart™ global personality-based personas are used to define how women are behaving in beauty, cosmetics and personal care and how to approach the two main personality clusters with differentiated messaging for competitive advantage.
A recent groundbreaking study by xsperient has made the connection between consumer’s personality and their decision processes and choices in healthy eating. Different personality types have been shown to be poles apart when comes to healthy eating. This discovery puts standardized segmentation on the map for food and beverage, nutrition, food service, hospitality and retail grocery and pharmacy.
PersonaSmart™ standardized consumer segmentations based on personality are applicable to all markets and built on a validated global tool. This assured solution saves you time, cost and risk.
Retail suppliers are flowing into the healthcare delivery market left open by the political vacuum around healthcare reform. The implications are profound but not always obvious. Retailers like CVS Health and now Walmart are taking aim at extensive healthcare delivery operations and, unlike traditional medical practices, they know how to generate customer satisfaction while reducing costs.
Do you seek to conduct market research in a way that encourages free, honest language from your respondents? True uninhibited language and released energy combined to deliver hidden insights. Added benefit – unstructured context provides the social and psychological underpinnings of their decision-making processes.
OnTheWall™ community platform is an innovative market research tool. Configured to collect results and seamlessly move respondents from one research technique to another, it is used in all languages all over the world.
At the Quirks Market Research Conference in March, xsperient gave a session on Science in CX. This talk covered the development of science-based personas to provide superior CX outcomes.
Consumers were recruited across all six PersonaSmart™ personality types and divided into two groups. One group were personality types which are hedonic and seek excitement and stimulation and the other group was made up of those who have a more self-transcendent and conservative nature.
One of xsperient’s alternative approaches to attitudinal segmentation uses PersonaSmart® Health standardized psychometric models contextualized to a specific condition or situation. This approach can be used alone or combined with more traditional segmentation techniques.

While the US healthcare system is in political limbo the health and wellness consumer is moving forward, demanding more information and access to services.

The retail industry – specifically grocery, pharmacy and big box stores – is reacting to this opportunity with onsite clinics, dietitians, classes and other services.

We’re seeing just the beginning in the rise of the healthcare and wellness retail industry by organizations that already have the attention and trust of the public.

That depends on the question! This topic is “hot” in healthcare and wellness research right now and we applaud that. It’s a powerful and valuable tool. However, when used in isolation it has the power to mislead as well as to inform.
That depends on the question! According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the maximum amount of added sugar you should ingest in a day is 25 grams (for women and children) or 37.5 grams (for men). It may not sound like much in grams however it’s six teaspoons and nine teaspoons respectively.
