With the annual DIA meeting only about 4 weeks away, it's time for me to shamelessly plug the session that I will be leading. It's called "The Future of Information Technology in Clinical Development and R&D" and will be at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday morning, room number A314.
The session will be a panel discussion on the application of information technologies and the key issues related to their adoption over the next five years. The discussion will focus on the real-world implementation of new technologies and their integration into the existing IT infrastructure and business landscape.
I am pleased to have the following individuals as panelists:
Alan S Louie, PhD
Health Industry Insights, an IDC Company
Chief Technical Officer
Sue Dubman, MA
Vice President, Information Technology and Informatics
The panelists have pretty strong views about the use of information technology in R&D and you won't be disappointed if you attend this session. As you can tell from their affiliations, each panelist comes from a unique segment of our industry and thus also have unique perspectives on the use of information systems in diverse settings. I am confident that we will discuss topics that will not come up in any of the other DIA sessions.
Yes, the session is on the last day of the DIA meeting. I like to think that they have saved the best for last.
I look forward to seeing you there.
