Wiring Data Circuits To Power 21st-Century Life Science R&D
Data associated with life science R & D is now largely collected in or converted to electronic form, and healthcare delivery data is well on its way to becoming fully computerized as well. Extracting synergistic value from these increasingly large and diverse electronic resources has become a major challenge. The work requires a sophisticated mix of people, policies, systems and methods, and a willingness to transcend outdated organizational models.
The presentation will address: -Bridging life science and real-world healthcare data -Leveraging clinical data for exploratory research -The profile of a data-driven life science R & D team
