The Power of Data

How Data Can Be the Differentiator for Your Next Therapy

The convergence of technology, AI, and precision medicine is creating significant opportunity to expedite and improve clinical development and clinical research. Data can be extremely powerful in an increasingly data driven world but not all data is equal.  

Join us for the Power of Data – How data can be the differentiator for your next therapy. During this in-person session we will explore how pharmaceutical and biotech industry sponsors may be challenged with ways to get your next groundbreaking treatment to market faster, while ensuring safety and providing enough evidence to demonstrate efficacy and differentiation to regulators, payors, providers and patients. Seating is limited, please RSVP today.

You will learn about:

  • Using RWD/RWE and historical trial data that can support you with
    clinical trials.  
  • Building an external control arm where you can bolster evidence for internal, regulatory or payor decision points. 
  • Supplementing trial data with real world data to get a richer view of the patient journey and their real world outcomes.
  • Understanding AI regulations
