PPD Inc. has been named by IDG’s CIO as a 2020 CIO 100 Awards honoree, according to a news release.

The honor was for "deploying a data-visualization platform enabling PPD to more quickly visualize targeted patient populations and investigator sites conducting clinical trials for pharmaceutical and biotech customers, helping speed the development of life-changing medicines," stated the release.

The annual CIO 100 Awards celebrate 100 organizations and their teams that are using information technology (IT) in innovative ways for business, officials said.
PPD was honored for its Preclarus site and patient visualization tool.
“The Preclarus site and patient visualization tool provides an intuitive way to help our drug development customers rapidly identify the optimal locations for patient enrollment, which is key to delivering safe new drugs to improve health,” said Rob Petrie, senior vice president and chief technology officer at PPD, in the release. “This new technology allows PPD teams to more efficiently and effectively define our site and patient strategies for enrolling patients into a clinical trial and  demonstrate to customers the rationale behind our data-driven approach, using detailed yet easy-to-understand maps and visuals.”
