Three additional areas of research where we excel:

KOL Mapping

Identify and engage the most influential thought-leaders in your space at global, national and local levels across all stages of your brand’s life cycle. Key opinion leaders (KOLs) drive adoption of new guidelines, treatment paradigms, products, indications, and formulations – so we know how essential it is for you to identify and target these specialists who can provide both inbound feedback on your promotion, and disseminate information across their spheres of influence. Our KOL Mapping research helps you to identify and foster relationships with these experts at a global, national and local level across all stages of your brand’s life cycle.

KOL identification and mapping

We identify KOLs in three ways:
Through primary, survey-based research.
Through literature and web search to identify key leaders based on articles authored, citations and journal impact factors.
Through their social media activities.

We then use secondary data to determine referral networks and to map the relationships between KOLs and other doctors in their area. And we complete the mapping by leveraging existing knowledge from within your organization and affiliates. 

Our web-based KOLOR (KOL online reporting) application is available to provide flexible access to all information collected within the KOL research process.

KOL Mapping helps you answer critical questions:

  • Who are the most influential thought leaders for my brand?
  • Who has influence on a global, national or local scale?
  • Which physicians receive the most referrals of my target patients?
