New press release out today from the offices of Thought Leader Select–
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 14, 2010 (CHAPEL HILL, NC)—Thought Leader Select, a North Carolina company dedicated to delivering sophisticated solutions for key opinion leader relationship management in the pharmaceutical industry, announces the launch of its KOL Incubator.
The company, known for its proprietary deep profiling research methodology that promotes industry engagement with the right medical experts in an array of therapeutic areas and disease states, has complemented its web-based tool for identifying medical expert teams for a variety of drug development needs. The KOL Incubator tracks new and young physicians as they engage in breakthrough clinical research, publish in medical journals, and speak at scientific conferences.
The new engine will track the progress of these health care providers, known in the healthcare community as “rising stars,” as they advance medical science. The incubator will gauge the impact of their work at regional, national, and international levels as their landmark work defines treatment guidelines for the next generation of medicines for better public health outcomes.
As these budding key opinion leaders accumulate a body of work that proves their standing of respect within the medical community, Thought Leader Select will move them into their core database of the world’s top medical experts. “This is an ideal role for us to play in advancing the science of medicine,” stated Dr. Maher Nourredine, chief scientific officer at Thought Leader Select. “Since we look at more categories of impact than our competitors, we can identify the new generation of thought leaders as they rise in specific development areas of medical research and patient care. We know who key opinion leaders are, as we compile objective, validated data on their skills and experiences.”
Thought Leader Select will provide the KOL Incubator service and technology to its portfolio of clients, for whom it manages existing databases of health care provider teams to serve on advisory boards, clinical research and trial teams, and continuing medical education speakers bureaus.
