Toward the Horizon: How COVID-19 Is Accelerating Innovation in Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences Analytics

December 3, 2020, 2020

Event Navigation

The life sciences industry thrives on innovation, so it’s no surprise that COVID-19 is rapidly driving inventive analytics solutions to address key challenges posed by the crisis. In this session, we’ll explore the impact of the pandemic on pharmaceutical manufacturers and the resulting acceleration of digitization as the industry responds and adapts.

Life sciences companies are taking advantage of digital health and virtual trial methodologies to mitigate delays in clinical research. They are using epidemiological modelling to study and predict the potential for using real-world data to gather evidence for COVID-19 therapies. They are evolving their sales and marketing strategies to optimize the overnight shift to digital channels to connect with prescribers. Finally, SAS experts will share perspective on lessons learned and the road ahead.
