Oracle Health Sciences Connect

We had a fantastic networking experience in Philadelphia, all because of you. From April 9 to 11, attendees across the life science industry gathered to share deep domain expertise, insights, and best practices. Stay tuned for more information on Health Sciences Connect 2020!

Unifying Action and Accelerating Results

Life science organizations are in the midst of a transformational, digital journey to unify action, accelerate trial results, and improve patients’ lives sooner. But the challenges of study builds, clinical data management, regulatory compliance, and more still loom large for R&D teams.

Innovations such as the cloud, AI-empowered services, and mHealth wearables present new methods to meet these challenges by streamlining processes, shortening cycle times, and supporting patient recruitment/participation.

All these advances require the kind of visionary leadership and support you’ll find at Oracle Health Sciences Connect. The event provides an opportunity to join your peers and discuss individual challenges, share insights, and network with industry experts while you learn about:

  • How the cloud unifies and accelerates the collection, analysis, and reporting of trial data
  • How AI can shorten mid-study changes, speed safety reporting, and expedite data analysis
  • How mHealth technology can innovate patient trial participation, exploit data acquisition, and uncover new, real-world insights
