Using real world data to drive Clinical Trials

WHEN: April 12, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

WHERE: Rydges Southbank, Brisbane

HISA in partnership with TriNetX invites you to attend an exciting breakfast presentation and networking opportunity. We continue the discussion with leaders and experts providing insights into using real world data, informatics and analytics to drive research and automating clinical trials, as well as providing updates on the latest international data linkage and connecting like-minded organisations and clinical researchers.

Our speaker is Dr. Manfred Stapff, the Chief Medical Officer for the Health Data Network TriNetX and is a physician and clinical pharmacologist with over 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. After his training in internal medicine, he worked in various positions in clinical research, medical and regulatory affairs in research-oriented pharmaceutical companies. Dr Stapff lives and works in Cambridge, MA, USA.

The presentation will focus on the practicalities on automating clinical trials, getting the best out of your data to support research, and bringing together collaborations with hospitals, research organisations and industry. It will also include strategies for using electronic health data in clinical development – from protocol design to patient identification.

Join and meet our visiting presenter and thought leader at this unique event.

Who should attend:

  • Clinical and health researchers
