Fort Lauderdale, FL - Innovations in clinical data management and the latest trends in pharmaceutical research and development claimed center stage at the 7th Annual Innovation Forum, a customer summit hosted by OmniComm Systems, Inc. (OTCQX: OMCM), a leading global provider of clinical data management technology.
With participants from more than a dozen countries, attendance at the annual event increased nearly 20% year-over-year and included representatives from 50 life science companies and Summit Partners. The standing-room-only audience listened to presentations from more than 25 thought leaders, including OmniComm customers who have achieved significant gains in clinical trials productivity, automation, data quality, operational efficiency and compliance using OmniComm’s suite of EDC products. The event was live-tweeted under the hashtag: #OMCM2017.
“Attending the Innovation Forum 2017 was a great opportunity for me to become inspired by other presenters and attendees. This year, the Forum provided more activities, speakers and networking opportunities. It was really exciting to see how the EDC technology is developing year by year,” said Maibritt Haugaard Møller, system validation expert at Larix A/S, a Scandinavian-headquartered contract research organization (CRO). She and Rob Nichols, chief commercial officer of Algorics, joined forces to present the session: What Does ICH E6 R2 Mean for Risk-Based Monitoring (RBM) and Clinical Trials?
