Research Symposium 2019
2019 Research Symposium: Tues., Oct. 29, 1:00 pm
At the 9th Annual Research Symposium held prior to AMCP Nexus in National Harbor, Md., presenters will discuss how to optimize treatment decision-making and technology in cancer care. Our program will focus on expedited drug approvals, innovative and curative therapies, and the role of health IT and artificial intelligence in oncology. These topics are among the forcing factors identified within the AMCP Foundation Trends in Health Care environmental monitoring series.
For just $200, you can add the Research Symposium to your Nexus registration, or register for the Symposium only.
Presentation topics include clinical and shared decision-making; patient concerns around health plan and payers’ use of data; innovative approaches for justifying the value of care; and the biopharmaceutical industry’s use of health IT and artificial intelligence to advance research, accelerate regulatory approvals and communicate value. The Symposium will also feature the presentation of an AMCP Foundation Best Poster Award to a Senior Investigator with the most compelling original research in Oncology & Data.
