"As technology adoption continues to scale rapidly in the life sciences industry, the industry and technology providers continue to innovate; pharmas and biotechs are looking for solutions that will drive quality and compliance, accelerate time to market, and weave in both a site-centric and a patient-centric focus. Technology solutions that power decentralized clinical trials, that drive diversity and equity, that improve access, that integrate a risk-based quality management strategy, and that drive interoperability will serve as differentiators and define the pace of innovation for the life sciences industry," says Dr. Nimita Limaye, research vice president, Life Sciences R&D Strategy and Technology at IDC Health Insights.
"Consolidated clinical trial results, augmented by real-world data and patient and provider insights, can help construct rich patient journey experiences that help life sciences companies and healthcare providers find patients who can benefit from innovative therapies and result in improved health outcomes and better knowledge sharing between researchers, medical affairs experts, providers, and patients," says Michael Townsend, research director, Life Sciences Commercial Strategies at IDC Health Insights.
