Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual 

Managing Late Stage Research, Observational Studies and Registries: 

Overcoming Operational Challenges
February 24-25, 2015 | Hyatt Regency Orlando | Orlando, FL 

Non-interventional studies are an integral part of clinical development programs and product development plans. Product benefit risk profile, comparative effectiveness data, and health economic evidences obtained from non-interventional studies are essential for multiple stakeholders, including regulatory agencies, payers, health care management organizations, formulary inclusion decision makers, healthcare professionals, as well as patients. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual Managing Late Stage Research, Observational Studies and Registries conference is designed to facilitate knowledge exchange around all aspects of observational research, from design of non-interventional studies and their management to application of the obtained data to business and stakeholder decisions.
