Date: 7 June


Time: 1PM New York/6PM London

There is no challenge more critical or costly in life sciences R&D than effectively managing the subject and operational data used in the development of new medical approaches. Poor data quality impacts the overall design, execution, quality, and management of clinical trials.

"The drug development process is predicated upon the availability of high quality data with which to collaborate and make informed decisions during the evolution of a product or treatment." - Informatica customer and CIO of leading Contract Research Organisation.

Simplifying the complexity of clinical trials data management requires certain procedural steps that lead to reduced costs, shorter time to market, increased veracity of results, and improved compliance with industry standards and regulations.

Join John Jones, IT strategist focused on life sciences, and Informatica, the industry leader in all things data, for a webinar showcasing industry best practices that lower the direct cost of poor data management in clinical research studies.

You'll learn more about the strategic data management capabilities needed to positively affect clinical trial cost and duration.
