Gaining from Gamification

Much of the data in clinical research to capture the patient voice in clinical trials, observational research, and clinical practice is gathered using questionnaires. However, conventional questionnaire design and, notably, online surveys can be conceived as dull and unengaging, resulting in negative respondent behaviour such as speeding, random responding, lack of attention, and premature termination, ultimately leading to lower quality data (1).

Writing good survey questions may seem deceptively simple. However, the challenges facing questionnaire developers include:
• Getting respondents’ attention
• Getting respondents to read things
• Getting respondents to think
• Getting people to respond

Maintaining the respondent’s engagement is a key factor in ensuring the data quality does not suffer and that a surprisingly long questionnaire can be administered without significant deterioration in the quality of the data, particularly if efforts are made to maintain respondent motivation (2).

The Flexible Factory Concept: A flexible bioprocessing platform to meet the changing needs of biomanufacturing

GE Healthcare Life Sciences

For the past several years, the biopharma industry has been buffeted by dynamic market conditions that are rapidly reshaping manufacturing requirements. These factors include: • The rise of small-market pharmaceuticals that do not require the production scale of the previous “blockbuster” drug model • Increased titers and process productivity that generate more bulk-product within a much smaller manufacturing footprint • The emergence of biosimilars and continued evolution of healthcare reform, which will increasingly pressure drug pricing and require greater cost discipline • Greater competition and shorter patent protection timelines, which will further ratchet up time-to-market pressures • Tighter capital markets that will create heightened scrutiny for all new investment projects
