    KOL Development

    Planning and Engagement

    KOL development is crucial for support of the clinical and commercial development of a new or existing product or indication. The first step is to create a strategic KOL engagement plan and timeline, which specifies the activities in which KOL engagement is required, such as advisory board meetings, publications, speaker programs, clinical research, and regulatory meetings. The next step is to identify and prioritize KOLs who can be invited to participate in those activities. The strategic plan is modified based on multiple factors, including new clinical data and the outcome of KOL activities.

    IFI supports KOL development by providing:

    • KOL ID to identify, assess, and prioritize KOLs for participation in a broad spectrum of programs.
    • Advisory Board Meetings to obtain critical insight, feedback, guidance, and recommendations from KOLs.
    • KOL Connect to facilitate an organized series of meetings with KOLs at professional association meetings.
