Identify the Influencers

Understand who the influencers are in social networks that are centered on specific health topics. Gain insights into their opinions, what resources they share and what sub-networks they are active in. Determine their relevancy, reach and who influences them.

Community Dynamics

Explore the dynamics of these online healthcare focused social networks. Experience how all stakeholders commingle on a level playing field, effectively flattening hierarchies of the past and creating an environment for discussion like never before.

The Relationships

Within a social media network there are many dynamic relationships being established. Network centrality analysis will paint a picture (literally) of how the network is put together, who is connected to whom, and what parties are most central to its activity.

Without Boundaries

Healthcare social media is a global phenomenon, especially on open networks like Twitter. Uncover details of conversations that span the globe and have opened up opportunities for business and individuals who previously may have been isolated by location or perhaps a rare disease experience.

Symplur Signals provides a previously untapped level of analytics. Something mere dashboards can’t achieve. Its capabilities are tailored to healthcare organizations, academic researchers, and other related entities who have an authentic need to understand the intricate, deep details related to health topics, content, and context on the social web.
