LIGHTNING RELEASES — June 2014: Chicago | New York: Q1 Productions and Pharmacist Partners have entered into a Media Partnership for several upcoming conferences. The announcement was made today by Pharmacist Partners®, The Clinical Knowledge Organization™ (CKO). As a CKO, Pharmacist Partners utilizes Pharmacists to provide education and advocacy to healthcare practitioners, on behalf of its biopharmaceutical clients.
The inaugural Customer Centric Medical Information Conference will take place June 26-27, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts, offering medical information professionals the opportunity to participate in in-depth discussions with experts and learn about the latest trends and hot topics in the MI industry.
With an agenda tailor-made for medical information professionals, the conference will offer session topics that cover increasing awareness and access to medical information, impact of the Sunshine Act, utilizing mobile technology, and enhancing collaboration across an organization. Sessions and panels will be conducted by some of the medical information industry’s biggest names, including Dominick Albano, Regional Senior Director of Medical Information at Pfizer, Sara Doshi of Eli Lilly, and Scott McConnell, Senior Director of Global Medical Information at Cubist Pharmaceuticals. A panel of healthcare professionals will be on hand to provide a first-hand perspective on technology and information and how MI professionals can more acutely tailor the available information to healthcare provider needs.
“As medical information professionals, we have the unique ability to provide off-label information to customers in response to an unsolicited request and are an invaluable customer touch point for the company,” said Doshi. “This conference provides opportunities to network with experts in this field, as we are all facing and working through very similar challenges.”
