Data management faces challenges from the complexities of trial design to an increase in data sources. Patrick Nadolny, global head of clinical data management at Sanofi will share his predictions and what needs to change over the next decade to meet these challenges.

Register for this webinar to hear Patrick discuss strategies for risk-based approaches to data management. Risk-based plans can help preserve data quality while incorporating protocol complexities, new data sources, and variations by country or site. You’ll also hear about strategies to leverage technology and new systems that equip data managers to better handle diverse data sources as they emerge.

Data management will undergo major changes over the next decade. The industry must not sit still. To move successfully from data management to data science, we need proactive change management for people, processes, and technology. This session is designed to help you define your path forward.

  • Why is clinical data management the foundation to support digital trials?
