KOL FMV Rates Dermatology USA presents fair-market value compensation rates for US-based Dermatology KOLs, by percentiles, with averages, for four (4) levels of Thought Leader influences (rare, international, national, and local).

These defensible market-based rate data are built directly from industry compensation paid to Healthcare Practitioners (HCPs) and Thought Leaders (KOLs). All KOL FMV rates reports represent fair-market value established using our reliable methodology of collecting data from industry professionals involved in defining compensation levels for exchanges with KOLs worldwide.

Establishing fair-market value compensation rates will:

  • reduce the external perception of inappropriate inducement and limit regulatory and compliance risks.
  • provide an independent reference for negotiations with Thought Leaders (KOLs) and Healthcare Providers (HCPs).
  • refine and support the development of fee schedules that are aligned with market conditions.
  • competitively position the organization and support good business practices.

The data included in each report are an aggregate of collected data and not individual rates. Companies and individuals who provided the data are not identified to protect their identity.

Payments made to physicians and thought leaders have been under scrutiny for a few years and companies have been working to adjust their rates to level with industry standards.

Adjustments to market rates should be made periodically and are best done through 3rd party research, providing a fair and balanced assessment of rates. These payment benchmarks have proved to help legal, compliance, and Medical Affairs executives establish sound working relationships with Thought Leaders and Healthcare Professionals.
