Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Commercialization & HEOR,
  • Thursday, October 18, 2018

Numerous studies have analyzed R&D productivity and measured drug approval rates, but an analysis focused on success rates has limitations, providing only one piece to the puzzle. In this webinar, Clarivate Analytics’ experts look at the dynamics of drug development a different way, using gold standard Cortellis content, innovative predictive modeling and powerful Centre for Medicines Research (CMR) data to help companies learn from the industry’s failures as well as its successes to improve R&D productivity. 

Our program will include:

  • A review of the current landscape of drug pipelines and challenges faced by the industry
  • A look at the next generation of competitive intelligence – harnessing machine learning and mathematical modeling to minimize effort in timeline and success prediction
  • An overview of the Clarivate Analytics Competitive Intelligence Maturity Curve
  • The use of gold standard Cortellis content to assess success and failure rates, incorporating characteristics of the drug, development program, and development sponsor
  • An examination of the future of multivariate analysis forecast modeling
