Hot Topic Roundtable Synopsis:

Global medical strategies are often based on an HQ perspective through insights from established sources, such as global trials and global advisory boards. This session will explore how the focus on securing one voice worldwide — and the ability to measure the impact of the strategy locally — calls for a need to secure an outside-in perspective by engaging the global organization through innovation in selecting and applying data to define the strategic process. 

Leading up to the event, Graves, Lewis, and Mikhelashvili held a webinar to discuss this hot topic. Link here you can watch the free recording of the webinar: The Emerging Role of AI in Extracting Complex Insights from Scientific Literature.
