  • A Real Retail Strategy for Healthcare

    Tuesday, March 31, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    With a focus on providing high-quality, lower-cost care, the healthcare industry has been looking to the retail industry for strategies used to engage and empower consumers. Lessons learned include how to use the retail setting as a medium for providing care and how to engage consumers outside of the care setting by using technology. 

    What is often neglected when assessing retail industry tactics is their core competency of using data insights to motivate and incentivize changes in consumer behavior. Connected Health solutions provide streams of valuable information that can be mined and analyzed to achieve business objectives. 

    Join Perficient as our healthcare and retail experts demonstrate how data can be leveraged to:

  • Transform passive recipients of care into active participants in care
  • Mass customize messaging aligned with population health initiatives
  • Achieve outreach objectives that convert unknown consumers into patients/members
  • Improve care and lower healthcare costs
  • Transforming Business in a Digital Era with Big Data and Microsoft

    Thursday, April 02, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    The socially integrated world, the rise of mobile, the Internet of Things - this explosion of data can be directed and used, rather than simply managed. That's why Big Data and advanced analytics are key components of most digital transformation strategies. 

    In the last year, Microsoft has made key moves to extend its data platform into this realm. Stalwart platforms like SQL Server and Excel join up with new PaaS offerings to make up a dynamic and powerful Big Data/advanced analytics ecosystem. 

    In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why you should include Big Data and advanced analytics in your digital transformation strategy
  • Challenges facing digital transformation initiatives
  • What options the Microsoft toolset offers for Big Data (Hadoop) and advanced analytics
  • How to leverage products and services you already own for your digital transformation
  • Harness the Power of Your Digital Marketing Tool Box

    Wednesday, April 15, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    Core to any digital transformation effort are the tools used to create, manage, and deliver a digital experience. This foundation helps you create great experiences that stand out from your competition, gain brand recognition, and improve interactions with customers. 

    Join us to learn how web content management tools are being used to deliver amazing digital experiences across web, mobile, commerce and social that support your overall digital transformation strategy. You’ll hear how best-in-class companies are harnessing the power of these tools and learn:

  • Key components in a digital transformation toolbox from web content management, user analytics and personalized content, to marketing tools and social interactions

  • HIPAA Compliance and its Relationship to Pharmacovigilance

    Thursday, April 16, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
    Most of us have heard of the United States Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and how it protects the privacy of our health information and gives us access to it. While discussions around HIPAA arise more frequently among healthcare institutions such as hospitals, HIPAA also plays an integral role in the life sciences industry. 

    Please join Perficient's Christi Cordeiro, safety and pharmacovigilance project manager, for a one-hour webinar in which she will provide an overview of U.S. HIPAA rules and discuss their application to pharmacovigilance programs.

    Decoding 21 CFR Part 11

    Thursday, April 23, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
    If you’re involved with the life sciences industry, odds are you’ve heard the term “21 CFR Part 11.” You may have gathered that it’s a set of regulations related to computer systems, but unless you work in a compliance group, you might not understand what it’s about or why it’s important. 

    To learn more about this somewhat mysterious set of regulations, please join Sally Miranker, head of computer system validation in Perficient’s life sciences practice, for a webinar in which she will “decode” the secrets of 21 CFR Part 11. 

    Building on our popular blog post series, Sally will explain the regulations in layman’s terms and offer implementation insights and case study examples.
