Webinar: Gaining business insight for clinical trials - text analytics for a data driven approach

August 17, 2016

It’s well-known that clinical trials are one of the most expensive parts of the drug development process; thus one of the goals of clinical trial professionals is to increase efficiency along the process.  Addressable bottlenecks include improving access to knowledge for site selection, patient populations, principal investigators, and key opinion leaders. In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits of text analytics and natural language processing over internal and external clinical trial data to optimise clinical trial design and gain knowledge from legacy data.

Duration: 45 minutes including Q&A
Time and date: Next dates TBD

Who should attend?  Managers, specialists, informaticians involved in Clinical Trial planning & analytics, strategic product & pipeline intelligence, comparative effectiveness, real-world data access
