In the latest episode of DSNTV, associate publisher and editor in chief Rob Eder spoke with Trygve Anderson, clinical executive at Elsevier, about delivering drug information faster to customers. “[We] get the data in, including all product data and patient safety data, and we deliver it in a timely fashion,” Anderson said. “We don’t feel that a customer of ours should have to wait for data. And that allows us to create what we now coin as a ‘true daily update’ in order to better serve those customers.”
