"I am deeply honored to be recognized for the PharmaVoice 100. My mission has always been to place the patient at the center of all their health data, breaking down data silos and transforming clinical research. Our operating system, which includes a digital front door for patients and researchers, has become the preferred technology solution driving real-time Real World Data connectivity, data refinement, and patient engagement for leading life sciences companies such as Boehringer Ingelheim, Takeda, UBC (United BioSource), and national patient registries such as the National Pancreas Foundation (NPF)," stated Ardy Arianpour.
