Topics covered during the inaugural cdsnet forum will include:

  • Clinical Data under the microscope
  • The changing landscape and increasing scrutiny
  • Regulatory insights and benchmark – what is on the horizon and how the industry is responding
  • Drivers for change: tech, multi data, complexity, value
  • More noise or more value – what is the pain/opportunity
  • Surfacing challenges/pain-points facing clinical data management leaders
  • What does good look like? Vision for success and emerging strategies
  • Strategies for deriving insight and value – roundtable discussion
  • What is “big data” – and how does it affect us?
  • How to get more value out of the data we have? (e.g. data lakes, visualization, Risk Management)
  • Latest thinking on clinical transparency
  • Tools and practices i.e. why listings, CDISC
  • What capabilities are needed e.g. global/local, in house/outsource
  • Next steps and hot topics
  • Discussion on the future objectives and needs of this community – topics for discussion at the next meeting

The forum will be comprised of Global Heads of R&D, Clinical Development, and/or Operations, along with Heads of Clinical Data Management and/or Statistical Programming. The inaugural meeting is complementary, but only 2-3 seats will be available per organization. The forum will take place November 10th at the Sidley Austin New York City office located at 787 7th Avenue, New York, New York from 9:30a.m. Until 4p.m. For more information or to register, visit or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
