Thank you to everyone who has made 2014 such a wonderful year! We have thoroughly enjoyed the conversations with you all and truly value your perspective. The Lilly Clinical Open Innovation (LCOI) team looks forward to continued interaction with you in 2015.
As we bring this year to a close, we’ve had some time to review our recent work, some of which we previously shared here on our blog. We sponsored a Patient Engagement App Challenge, which eventually led to the LVJJ website. The LVJJ website is a pilot project to improve how we present information to patients and caregivers on study websites. We’ve also progressed on our target profiles project, which is aimed at building a consistent framework for clinical trial eligibility criteria. And we created the Lilly Innovation Site Advocacy Group, providing us with access to great feedback from research sites.
This year we also had the opportunity to attend several conferences, which proved to be a great offline complement to the online conversations we’ve had. Our attendance at clinical trial-related conferences included Partnerships in Clinical Trials and the Drug Information Association (DIA) annual meeting. We also attended Health Datapalooza, which allowed us to make serendipitous collisions with other health data enthusiasts.
Last but certainly not least, we are proud to have sponsored MedicineX and to work alongside MedX ePatient Advisors to create and conduct the Partnering For Health Workshop bringing patients and pharma together to improve clinical trials. Check out the video of the workshop below.
We’re winding down for the year, closing our laptops, and even getting in some ping pong games. This blog post will be our last of 2014, and our Twitter activity will also be a bit lighter. For your holiday reading pleasure, we’ve compiled a list of our five most popular blog posts of 2014.
From LCOI to you and yours – Happy Holidays and see you in the new year!
