Dr. Barbara Tardiff Joins a Faculty of Clinical Data Authorities to Discuss Advancing Clinical Trials With New Technologies and Existing Data Sources at Clinical Research Informatics World 2015, May 6-7 in Boston

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2015) - Cambridge Healthtech Institute and Clinical Informatics News are pleased to present the final agenda for Clinical Research Informatics World (May 6-7, 2015 in Boston), a new conference designed to gather industry leaders and innovative thinkers in clinical trials -- from clinical operations executives to data analysts -- for discussions, presentations and networking on reshaping the clinical trial paradigm. The program will open with a keynote address on the topic of "Transforming Clinical Trials with Big Data and New Technology" by Dr. Barbara Tardiff, M.D., Vice President of Development Operations and Global Head of Clinical Innovation and Informatics and Worldwide Research & Development at Pfizer.

Dr. Tardiff joins a faculty of clinical data authorities to cover the great opportunity to advance clinical trials with new technological advances and existing big data sets. The event complements Cambridge Healthtech Institute's portfolio of leading informatics events, including Bio-IT World and Medical Informatics World Conferences.

"The clinical trial field is poised for a shift in its existing paradigm of low recruitment rates, low patient engagement and retention, high costs, and increasing complexity," states Lee Yuan, Producer of Clinical Research Informatics World. "Streamlining and advancing the clinical trials process is possible with the emergence of new technologies -- such as mobile devices and wearables -- and harnessing and unlocking the potential in existing data sources, including biomarker, genomic, EHRs, claims data, and existing clinical trial data."

Attendees of Clinical Research Informatics World will have the opportunity to delve into focused breakout sessions on big data use and analytics for advancing clinical research, new technologies in use for clinical trials (including mobile technology, wearables and social media), and cross-industry data sharing.

Event details, including conference presentation abstracts can be found at Advance registration rates apply and are available until March 20, 2015.
