Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 12th Annual

Clinical Data Strategy and Analytics

Enabling Data Driven Clinical Trials

February 19-20, 2020

E-clinical technologies have changed the landscape of the clinical research industry and healthcare IT in general. Digitalization of healthcare data, mobile data capture technologies, and cloud storage of data are a few of the main technological advances that influence clinical data management and analytics. These technological advances have been coupled with novel data visualization solutions, and this powerful duo is helping to develop a new paradigm of data-driven clinical trials. CHI’s 12th Annual Clinical Data Strategy and Analytics conference will be bringing together top clinical research informatics experts to discuss the challenges and find solutions necessary to navigate and thrive in the rapidly changing environment.
