“I’ve never met a puzzle I didn’t want to unravel.” That’s Lisa Smith, leader of Thought Leader Select’s research group, in her own words. This award-winning journalist is thorough, accurate, and exhaustive in her efforts to deliver peerless assessments of the medical community for Thought Leader Select’s clients.
Lisa brings a background in reporting on the biopharmaceutical and chemical industries, and a decade of healthcare research and consulting to Thought Leader Select. Those experiences made this University of Michigan graduate the ideal candidate to help Paul devise the industry standard in key opinion leader identification, known as deep-profiling. Together, Paul and Lisa created a comprehensive analysis model built on a foundation of ethics, objectivity and a relentless pursuit of information relevant to decision-makers, in contrast to a competitive landscape littered by dumps of subjective data.
As a founding partner in Clear Point Health and Thought Leader Select, Lisa’s background provides abundant versatility. Clients rely on her critical thinking to improve healthcare quality, define trends in public health outcomes, and evaluate thought leaders. The unifying result of all of Lisa’s work in healthcare research and consulting is better public health.
Someone whose most valuable professional qualities are judgment and ability to filter information would have to be an avid reader, board game player and lover of crossword puzzles. So it is with Lisa, a mother of three, who also enjoys working in her community with children, the ultimate seekers of the answers to life’s many questions.
