"Our efficient approach to conducting clinical trials is a key driver of our growth in the biotech space, where clients are seeking faster and more cost-efficient solutions," said John Moller, CEO at Novotech.

Commenting on the partnership, Ivan Jarry, CEO of ObvioHealth said “Asia-Pacific is an area of opportunity for ObvioHealth– not only is it the fastest growing region for clinical trials, but we’re also seeing a growing interest in DCTs, especially from patients in APAC who are increasingly accepting and adopting digital health tools. Our partnership with Novotech provides us with the local expertise often required when conducting studies in APAC where regulatory agencies, language and cultural customs vary by country.”
Judges for the awards include some of the leading figures in biopharma.
