Compile: KOL Identification

Identify KOLs in a disease area by scoring different attributes and map their network to assess influence


Compile’s array of unified and linked data sources provide visibility into social, research, professional, practice and referral attributes for physicians. These attributes can be leveraged to identify the most influential key opinion leaders (KOLs) across therapy areas. KOLs are crucial in gaining traction with doctors and pharmacies for your brand. Identifying the right KOLs and reaching out to them can make all the difference for your brand’s profitability.

Compile uses the attributes from various data sources as a measure to come up with a final weighted score for ranking the KOLs. The KOL to physician relationship is also measured to understand their influence and map the network.
