Leveraging a KOL Identification Platform for Medical Affairs

One of the most important aspects of digital engagement strategies is the ability to effectively target HCPs. By leveraging data-driven insights and healthcare intelligence/real-world data through a KOL mapping platform to identify gaps in medical education, field medical teams can create content that provides the most value to HCPs and still find and target high-value KOLs.

While traditional methods such as seminars or conferences can still be useful, particularly for one-on-one learning experiences, digital engagement strategies are becoming increasingly popular among HCPs for their convenience and flexibility.

Digital KOLs and DOLs are a great way to reach HCPs with digital engagement strategies. KOLs are typically established experts in their fields who have already achieved success within the medical community. They provide insight into current trends and topics related to their specialty, which is invaluable for field medical teams looking to engage healthcare professionals with on-point messaging.

Similarly, DOLs are individuals who have achieved some level of recognition for their expertise in particular areas, but may not yet have reached KOL status. They can still serve an important role in providing expert opinion on specialized topics or technologies that may not yet be widely known among HCPs – making them a valuable asset when it comes to engaging healthcare professionals with up-to-date information.

In this case study, H1 partnered with a top global pharma company to enable them to expand their digital engagement strategies beyond traditional KOLs to deliver effective messaging related to patient care while also staying compliant with healthcare regulations – making it easier than ever before to keep HCP audiences informed on cutting edge research developments.
