Harnessing the Power of Digital Innovation & Healthcare Intelligence to Empower Patients
The pharma industry is on the cusp of digital innovation.  Success and progress will depend on only the best science, teamwork and an understanding that the biggest solution isn’t always the best.  PRA Health Sciences is a Healthcare Intelligence Organization, a think tank for healthcare research, and we’re at the center of this change.  This session will provide an overview of our unique digital innovations and technologies including how we’re reducing the burden of research on the patient— regardless of their race, gender, socioeconomic status, or ethnicity— through the use of mobile technology and connected devices.  
We possess the capabilities of a world-class CRO, the technology of a startup, and the insights of a global data organization making PRA Health Sciences a true healthcare intelligence organization that provides customers with end to end solutions from clinical phases through the stages of commercialization— all rolled into one.  We make strategic decisions using our global expertise and data, providing customized, individualized solutions based on our client’s needs.  In everything we do, we’re driven to help those who need us most— patients.
