Technology and Big Data are often referred to as "the future of healthcare," but how will they change it? The life sciences are poised for both evolution and revolution due to the ubiquity of data found on everything, from our genes to our health trackers and smart phones.

Glen de Vries, president and co-founder of Medidata Solutions, will explore how patients benefit from more precise medicine—both interventional therapies and preventative care—thanks to digitization and data, and how traditional research will move to broader, more patient-centric approaches.

Medidata is the leading cloud platform for life sciences research. Glen has been driving Medidata's mission since the company’s inception in 1999: Powering smarter treatments and healthier people.
