Charting a course: Sailing into the future of strategic feasibility

Tuesday, Feb 7th 3:45-4:15pm

Abstract: Strategic feasibility is charting a new course. Pandemics, regulation changes, patient centricity, diversity/inclusion, real-world data, predictive analytics, and digital and decentralized site and patient partnership models challenge historical feasibility methodologies. Utilizing data science to gain trial insights is a burgeoning area of development. How organizations encapsulate these challenges, leverage performance analytics, and bring forth enterprise feasibility solutions that were once thought of as consulting will now be mainstream feasibility.
