Data Processing Solutions and Integration



The 4th PHUSE SDE Netherlands focusses the attention on the unsung heroes of clinical research and healthcare: data processing solutions. This landscape has never been more turbulent than today; and the choice of solutions is greater than ever. This poses many questions: off-the-shelf or bespoke? All-in-one or smaller modules? Global vendor or local startup? Then there are the challenges that arise in integrating solutions for data streams, such as EDC, wearables, mobile technology, e-diaries and imaging devices, into a single computing environment, where they can be structured and analysed. Should we adopt new data analysis tools and if so, how do we combine these with existing packages technically and procedurally?

We look forward to welcoming presenters to share their experiences in acquiring, deploying, using, improving, and integrating data processing solutions. We strive to get the perspective of sponsor organisations, software vendors and technology providers and ask them to share their ideas and visions for now and for the future.
