It’s time again for Med Ad News’ annual agenda edition, and this year, industry thought leaders, including four executives from Intouch’s leadership team, lent their expertise to answer pressing concerns on pharma marketers’ minds, including data — data collection, data analysis, and of course, data privacy and security.
