Data Sciences - The New Analytics Paradigm, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 12, 2015) - Access to data and key information for the purpose of Analytics has been a constant in the Pharmaceutical / Life Sciences / Health Care industries, and this has been true for a great deal of time. Recent industry challenges such as declining R&D productivity, increased levels of regulatory and payer scrutiny, declining sales, blockbusters going off patent, and the need to reduce healthcare costs while improving patient care etc. have only served to dramatically increase the importance of Data Sciences Analytics as a prerequisite for efficient delivery of Life Sciences and Health Care products and services.

Join industry experts Patrick Zbyszewski, Executive Director of Project and Data Management at Onconova Therapeutics, and Vipul Kashyap, Head of Product Strategy and Management at MaxisIT, for an informative webinar, on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at 12pm EST. This webinar discusses Data Sciences Analytics and the new Analytics Paradigm from an overall industry perspective along with a discussion of the MaxisIT Common Services Analytics Framework and Data Sciences Analytics Workbench functionality which MaxisIT will be implementing within its CTRenaissance suite of tools and how the functionality is used to oversee the presentation and availability of data that will support and drive Data Sciences initiatives across the Health Care & Life Sciences industries, including Predictive Analytics.

The new Analytics & Reporting paradigm expects to be able to access additional types of data such as Claims Data, EMRs, patient behavior data, Imaging data, Cost Data etc., which have recently emerged alongside the "traditional" forms of Clinical Data produced by R&D processes. These new types of formats are available for integration and aggregation across the entire Data Sciences Analytics spectrum.

To execute this new breed of Analytics, the Role of the Data Scientist has surfaced and become more visible and important within Health Care & Life Sciences organizations. Data Scientists expand upon the more-familiar Business Analyst role by exploring and examining data located in disparate standardized and non-standardized, structured and non-structured, and internal / external data sources, with the intention of looking at data from many perspectives in order to uncover a previously hidden insight, which in turn can lead to a competitive advantage or address a pressing business problem.

Key Takeaways of the webinar include:

  • Understanding the various types and formats of Analytics for the Health Care & Life Sciences industries
  • Reviewing the role and function of the Data Scientist in carrying out new and expanded Analytics projects
  • Discuss the concept and infrastructure of an overall environment to support Data Sciences Analytics
  • Discuss how adoption of Data Sciences Analytics initiatives, coupled with Big Data initiatives, can provide crucial insights to help organizations anticipate future business opportunities
