The Future of Data Management

September 1, 2020 | Webinar

Data collection and management approaches are shifting. Today’s clinical research environment consists of a never-ending flow of real-world data from various sources, subject to multiple regulatory requirements and via a variety of standardized formats. Taking these massive amounts of data points and translating them from data to information, knowledge and, ultimately, wisdom requires a new set of skills for our data scientists. This session will discuss what it means to be a data scientist in our current healthcare world, highlighting what skills are needed, where to get them and how to maintain these skills as data management continues to evolve.
