MediciGlobal Appoints Dr. Linda Capsey as Vice President

-- Patient recruitment-retention leader MediciGlobal expands its international team as the company continues to invest in best in class talent

PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MediciGlobal Ltd., a global leader in patient recruitment and retention for clinical trials, today announced the appointment of Linda Capsey, PhD as Vice President Project Management and Innovation. With more than 20 years industry experience, Dr. Capsey joins MediciGlobal's dynamic management team as a leader in building and managing high performing patient recruitment – retention teams for global clinical trials. In her position, Dr. Capsey will provide strategic and operational oversight for recruitment-retention program development, site training workshops for patient communications and informed consent, and serve as a consultant to biopharmaceutical companies for patient recruitment-retention planning and feasibility.

Previously, Linda served as Client Services Director at the global patient recruitment firm, Fast4wD Ogilvy, UK, a position she held for nearly a decade. Most recently Dr. Capsey has focused on medical education programs with Ogilvy 4D, UK.  Previously Dr. Capsey spent 12 years at GlaxoSmithKline in marketing and clinical research, holding a various position that included Market Access Strategy, Marketing Management, Pipeline Strategy Management and Clinical Trials Management. Dr. Capsey obtained her PhD in Molecular Biology from the National Institute for Medical Research - London, UK

With a track record in clinical trials management, pharmaceutical marketing and creative healthcare communications, Linda Capsey describes herself as a passionate "Communications Scientist". "I get my kicks out of taking complex scientific information and distilling it into simple, tailored and impactful clinical communications for a range of different patient, public and healthcare professional audiences." She is equally passionate about delivering services in the context of simple, clear, transparent and efficient procedures underpinned by quality control and a clear understanding of the unique regulatory and ethical circumstances which apply to clinical trial communications.  

According to MediciGlobal President, Liz Moench "MediciGlobal's highly skilled international staff with expertise in clinical trial recruitment as well as significant experience in social marketing, patient advocacy, health communications, site support and performance metrics provide clients with the global solutions they are looking for." Moench adds "Our track record is driven by our people. Our teams of experts are not generalists. We hire the best in the marketplace because we mix consumer marketing and communications skills with scientific and regulatory understanding of the clinical trial process, to produce programmes that step up patient recruitment and improve retention."

"As an innovative global leader dedicated to optimizing the patient recruitment through innovation, technology and our unique patient-centric approach, we require innovative leadership to foster our 'Glocal' approach that requires our recruitment-retention teams to think globally and act locally," says Liz Moench, CEO of MediciGlobal.  "Linda's international experience, and collaborative leadership style is an excellent strategic fit with our glocal culture." 

MediciGlobal's diverse team consists of medical professionals, nurses, digital marketers, patient advocates, writers, designers and business analysts. MediciGlobal's business is 100% patient recruitment-retention focused. For more than 24 years Medici has supported biopharmaceutical companies in accelerating clinical trials through innovative and cost effective recruitment-retention programs across a multitude of disease areas. More importantly MediciGlobal's metrics demonstrate the impact of its programmes on time and cost saved. Core global programmes are run from Medici's offices based in Europe and the USA.

Moench observes that many pharmaceutical companies are experiencing significant delays in the clinical development process. The most significant bottleneck is due to difficulties with identifying, enrolling, and retaining suitable patients for the clinical trials required for product registration."MediciGlobal's services and our experienced staff have refined processes, methodologies and strategies to address this need." She adds.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
