BOSTON, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Innovation Insight eXchange (IIeX) Health conference opens Wednesday in Philadelphia, InCrowd, provider of on-demand answers from validated experts, will join a distinguished assembly of life science insights experts in charting a new path toward faster medical innovation, driven by new technology and innovation in research.
Presented jointly by Greenbook and InCrowd, in partnership with Merck and supported by Communispace Health, IIeX Health features TED-style presentations and panels that open up a frank dialogue on emerging methods from inside the traditional research discipline and beyond that are accelerating innovation. InCrowd's Janet Kosloff is co-chairing this go-to event with an emphasis on new thinking, innovative companies, and new technologies to benefit the life sciences companies also in attendance.
On Wednesday, April 29 at 9:40 am ET, InCrowd's Caleb Costa, vice president of client services, will unveil new research conducted by InCrowd on physician preferences in healthcare or drug-related dialogues with vendors. With over 90% of physicians using mobile reference apps while at work, and some 40% of physicians going online during patient visits, the research highlights the imperative for mobile support, appealing user interfaces, and keeping the research dialogue convenient and simple in order to deliver healthcare provider insights at the speed of business.
On Wednesday, April 29 at 10:20 am ET, InCrowd's Diane Hayes, Ph.D., president and co-founder, will moderate a panel discussion featuring leaders from AstraZeneca, Merck and SoundHealth who will discuss the best ways of delivering on the unmet needs of client insights organizations. As new technology and work processes both solve problems and create others, the session will survey the innovations most likely to impact market researchers and marketing teams and how to best harness them towards maximum future value.
"The past year in particular has brought so many genuinely disruptive technology options that leading life sciences marketing teams either immerse themselves in dialogues like IIeX– or they fall behind," said Janet Kosloff, CEO and co-founder of InCrowd. "We're proud to participate and share our vision as the industry finds new ways to gets closer to its customers – both physicians and patients - and ultimately speed medical innovation."
