Manhattan Research is hosting a webcast entitled "Taking the Pulse v7.0: Physicians and Emerging Information Technologies" on understanding physicians' use of technology.

Manhattan Research, a healthcare market research and services firm, New York, will pose the following five questions:

- How many physicians are using the Internet during patient consultations?

- What is the role of mobile devices such as iPods, MP3 players, tablet PCs, and PDAs for physicians?

-Which offline information sources are physicians eschewing in favor of offline sources?

- Are physicians interested in Web 2.0 technologies such as streaming video, blogs, podcasting and social networking?

- Which activities do physicians prefer to conduct online versus offline with a representative?

The webcast will be held on Thursday May 10, 2007 at 11.00 a.m., and 3.00 p.m. EDT, for qualified business accounts only.
