Event Details



September 18, 2014

4:30 pm

Offices of Medidata Solutions

350 Hudson St, NYC

The role of the patient in healthcare has become ever more participatory. Indeed, patient-centricity is no longer just viewed as a commercial opportunity, but a vital element of the research and discovery continuum. To engage this approach, companies are reimagining the way they interact and engage with patients, re-envisioning the entire patient journey from recruitment through to the post-trial debriefing. The goal is important—to make clinical trials more relevant, focused, and practical.

Join us for a discussion of the challenges, issues, and opportunities afforded by a patient-centric approach to clinical trials, presented by NewYorkBIO and Medidata Solutions, the leading provider of cloud-based clinical trial solutions.

Pre-registration is required.
