Challenges Ahead! A Fast-growing Business Landscape



The healthcare landscape continues to evolve under the influence of ongoing digitalisation, increasing regulatory requirements, competition, cost pressure and the changing behaviour of consumers and patients.

In this context, PHUSE has built a strategic initiative called Future Forum, aiming to drive forward the industry thinking on key topics around technology, data, processes and collaboration.

Out of a broad range of topics addressing future challenges, we have selected the newly established Study Data Standardisation Plan, CDISC conformance checking, SAS Studio applied in clinical development, creation of PowerPoint Presentations using SAS, cloud computing, new roles and challenges for statistical programming and last, but not least PHUSE itself.

As for all SDE's, the goal is to exchange ideas and create value for participants as well as for the PHUSE Future Forum. The agenda will encourage intense discussions after each presentation and provide time between the sessions for networking.

Already a member but not sure how you can benefit?

PHUSE is an expanding, global society with a global membership of clinical data scientists. It requires a large pool of resources to help with its running, and so there are many opportunities for members to become involved.
