ASCO 2018 in review

Written by Ellen Weiss, Director, Business Development

Rolling my suitcase up the street at the conclusion of American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) conference on Monday, I reflected on the huge number of steps my fitbit registered across the four day meeting in Chicago. Many tens of thousands of steps had been logged, and certainly my sore feet told me that was true!

More important than the number of steps I had walked throughout the conference was the number of hands I had shaken in greeting over that time. Former colleagues, teachers, peers, clients and even competitors all crossed my path. We greeted each other with surprise and even delight at that moment of recognition across the very crowded room. There were more than 40,000 people attending the conference, so finding that familiar face felt extra special to me.

Clinical research demands the very best of each of us, every day. A clinical research trial will generate hundreds of thousands, if not millions of data points. Those data points contain the answers that will advance treatments and cures. Some of those data points may reveal a troublesome factor, which demands immediate action. Finding critical pieces of information among the many thousands of bits of data a sponsor sees is a persistent challenge in clinical research. Cmed’s encapsia clinical data suite allows a sea of data to yield live, sophisticated Insights that allow trial managers and safety teams to act, and act quickly. No spreadsheets, no separate databases, just one single platform to do it all.

Live access to critical data points results in moments of recognition that help sponsors shorten timelines and to make more informed decisions, and we do this better than anyone else you will meet. And don’t just take my word for it; Cmed has earned a 90% return customer rate. Can we help you and your team find more moments of recognition in your sea of data? Reach out to speak with a member of our team. We’ll be looking for you, and will be delighted to shake your hand at the start of a thoughtful and productive collaboration.
