We have a tradition in the RxView blog of starting each new year by asking if the year ahead will be “The Year of Drug Safety” or “The Year of Healthcare Technology”. We typically lay out a few thoughts on why the year ahead has the potential to be a big year.
This year feels different. Maybe it’s the incredible bull market that has inflated our confidence or the fact that my colleague Jim Davis feels that it is a foregone conclusion that the Philadelphia Eagles will finally win the Super Bowl (sorry Jim, that’s ridiculous!). Or perhaps it’s the fact that our client roster keeps growing, Evidex keeps getting more valuable to our users every day, and key industry opinion leaders are confirming that our vision is THE path forward. Whatever the reason, I’m willing to be a bit bolder this year.
2018 WILL BE the year that the pharmacovigilance industry embraces the next generation of drug safety data, analytics, and software; What we call Pharmacovigilance 2.0.
