With an agenda tailor-made for medical information professionals, the conference will offer session topics that cover increasing awareness and access to medical information, impact of the Sunshine Act, utilizing mobile technology, and enhancing collaboration across an organization.  Sessions and panels will be conducted by some of the medical information industry’s biggest names, including Dominick Albano, Regional Senior Director of Medical Information at Pfizer, Sara Doshi of Eli Lilly, and Scott McConnell, Senior Director of Global Medical Information at Cubist Pharmaceuticals.  A panel of healthcare professionals will be on hand to provide a first-hand perspective on technology and information and how MI professionals can more acutely tailor the available information to healthcare provider needs.
