Company to Release New Survey Findings from C-Suite Leaders on Commercial Spend and Planning and Essentials for a Successful Launch

MORRISVILLE, N.C., Jan. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syneos Health™ (Nasdaq:SYNH), the only fully integrated biopharmaceutical solutions organization, will share new research and real-world insights for driving shareholder value and increasing the likelihood of launch success during this year’s Biotech Showcase™ and Digital Medicine & Medtech Showcase events.

Executives from the company’s market-leading clinical and commercial organizations will be on hand and participate in three panels during the events, which run parallel to the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, January 7-9. 

“Scientific advances are leading to a surge in breakthrough medicines and digital therapies at a time when biopharmaceutical companies are facing an even more uncertain pricing and reimbursement environment,” said Alistair Macdonald, Chief Executive Officer, Syneos Health. “To ensure these treatments reach patients, biopharmaceutical leaders must innovate how they test and commercialize therapies.
