Microsoft Discusses SharePoint and Clinical Trials at DIA

A storm, complete with hail, thunder and generous amounts of lightning, appeared to follow me through Connecticut and Rhode Island as I drove to Boston on Wednesday for the DIA meeting.  Didn't make it until almost 4 PM, only to have the storm break out in Boston at 6 PM in all its glory.  Although I'd missed the presentation on global regulatory harmonization (which included Japan's top pharma regulatory official), the few hours were very well spent. Flagging a cab was quite difficult, with very long lines at the convention center, so we found a kindly trolley car driver who took us to one appointment, and gave us an impromptu tour of the North Side along the way.  One highlight of the trip was a visit with two top executives with Microsoft's Life Sciences division (in order of their appearance: Les Jordan, Industry Technology Strategist and Michael Naimoli, Director) to learn more about SharePoint, its manufacturing and drug development platforms, and a new clinical trial data management platform developed by TranSenda (whose CEO, Robert Webber explains the system) but powered by Office.  For the die-hard Microsoft fans, here's a brief audio clip (which isn't on our web site yet) AMS

  • <p>One could say that supply chain security is the most critical issue facing drug manufacturers today—and perhaps facing our healthcare system as well. The supply chain is at the heart of healthcare’s greatest problems—drug counterfeiting and adulteration, shortages of key medicines, and of course escalating medical costs. Without security of supply, none of these challenges can be addressed. <a href="http://www.ccentprep.com">ccent exam</a> | <a href="http://www.aplusdumps.net">a+ certification</a> | <a href="http://www.aplusnotes.net">a+ certification practice test</a> | <a href="http://www.aplustips.com">a plus certification</a> | <a href="http://www.networkplusdumps.net">network+</a> | <a href="http://www.networkplusnotes.com">network certification</a> | <a href="http://www.networkplusprep.com">network training</a> | <a href="http://www.securitypluscert.net">security+ certification</a> | </p>
