Improved data availability coupled with advance technology has been responsible for a new era of customer understanding, communication, and connections. For life sciences companies, this new era means radical changes in decision making, interaction with patients, communication with HCPs and a better understanding of how to connect with the growing number of stakeholders in healthcare. At the ZS Impact Summit, analytics experts, Dharmendra Sahay and Rohan Fernando shared their perspective and past experience in a keynote presentation on the future of analytics. Shortly afterward, the pair met with futurist, Mike Walsh, to talk about how a new wave of data and analytics are altering the way life sciences companies function. The pair also spoke to Mike on the usage of real-world-evidence (RWE), how the right data can help teams determine their next best action and why machine learning is crucial for any company hoping to advance their analytics.
