eClinical Forum Fall Meeting


The eClinical Forum just completed its Fall meeting held at the corporate headquarters of Biogen-Idec in Cambridge, MA. The Forum started in 2000, was the idea of a group of people who were keen to create something unique – a group run by its members for its members. Independence, openness and public dissemination have been hallmarks of its success. Pharmaceutical, healthcare, regulatory, academic and support industry members participate in open discussion, networking and exchange that provides the practical information, approach and learning experiences required to maximize the success of eClinical initiatives. Many eClinical Forum deliverables are made freely available within the public domain.


Presenters were from a broad array of DM, IT, clinical and regulatory experts. Pharma companies included (in alphabetical order), Allergan, Array BioPharma, Biogen-Idec, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Cubist, Merck, Novartis and Pfizer, and a broad spectrum of top notch service providers. Dean Gittleman of Target Health presented an update on behalf of the EDC Hosting Task Force and Jules Mitchel presented a provocative presentation on “Challenges and Recommendations When Implementing New eSystems.“ Our thanks go to Suzanne Bishop and Richard Perkins who “run the show.“ If you are interested in joining or attending a meeting, please let us know.
