LONDON AND PHILADELPHIA – June 18, 2019:  Signant Health (formerly CRF Health and Bracket) will provide expert insights at the forthcoming DIA Global Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA., from 23-27 June 2019. Signant will have a significant presence at DIA as the company celebrates its new brand launch with customers and showcases the industry’s most comprehensive patient-centric technology suite – simplifying every step of the patient journey through clinical research.

“Although the name Signant Health is new, our expert technology and scientific teams have partnered with sponsors and CROs for over 20 years,” commented Mike Nolte, CEO of Signant Health. “Each year, DIA encourages important conversations about advancing research, and our contribution to that dialogue will be a ruthless focus on the patient experience. Our strategy and our team are focused on building solutions from the patient out, delivering speed, efficiency and increased data integrity. That simplicity and clarity extends the reach of drug development, reduces investment and improves data integrity as sponsors and CROs bring life-changing therapies to our families and communities around the world.”
