Whether you’re a Medidata platform power user or just beginning your first study, you’ll gain more insights during our three deep-dive afternoon tracks, with breakout sessions covering:

Track 1 | Best practices for today’s clinical trial: The clinical development and drug approval ecosystem is changing with historic velocity, and new models and strategies are needed to improve the likelihood of approval. What does success take? Data capture, management, and clinical operations with a unified platform.

Track 2 | Data analytics: With its exponential growth, centralized, integrated data drives the insights that boost the value of a study. What does it take to succeed? A different way of thinking and working, one which connects the life science ecosystem on a single operating system. A unified system delivers a central clinical and commercial source of truth for data; simple and easy to use tools for workflow collaborations; and artificial intelligence driven insights.

Track 3 | Empowering Patients: At the center of every clinical trial is the patient, and the quality of the patient experience has real-world implications for the discovery of new therapies. Understanding how to optimize the patient experience drives real value in the development of new drugs and medical devices.
