Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Bonnie Snow, an industry-leading biomedical information professional, author and educator has joined InfoDesk as Director of Pharma Intelligence. Snow’s responsibilities will include taxonomy management, relationship mapping and clinical ontology development for InfoDesk’s Pharma Intelligence platform.
“We are delighted to have Bonnie on our team,” said Sterling Stites, InfoDesk CEO, adding, “Her contributions will be invaluable.”
Snow noted that “for decades,” a lack of “consistent terminology standards” among various resources has hindered pharmaceutical companies in their research efforts, making it difficult to query and analyze data across multiple information sources, such as clinical trial and drug pipeline databases.
InfoDesk’s recently introduced InfoDesk Pharma Intelligence platform solves that problem, providing a whole new approach to integrating, filtering, analyzing and sharing critical biomedical intelligence. Unlike other solutions, InfoDesk Pharma Intelligence is wholly “content neutral,” allowing users to combine and analyze virtually any type of pharmaceutical information, including pipeline data, clinical trials, patent information and more.
In the near term, Snow will focus on finalizing the mapping for PipelinePlus, the first module of the InfoDesk Pharma Intelligence platform which was recently released in beta. PipelinePlus is the breakthrough solution from InfoDesk that makes it easy to manage multiple drug pipeline resources–including ALL licensed pipeline products and internal data sources–simultaneously.
An information industry veteran with 37-plus years of experience, Snow has been employed as advanced subject specialty trainer, seminar author, and information management consultant supporting pharmaceutical and health technology industry customers worldwide, as well as U.S. government agencies (USPTO, FDA, NIH, NLM).
In this regard, InfoDesk CEO Stites noted that Snow “has a consistent and successful track record in content analysis and competitive assessment to support development and design of new online products,” adding “She is also widely recognized as a subject specialist and expert searcher familiar with industry applications.”
Among her many positions, Snow was most recently Director, Content Analysis & Development for Thomson Reuters Life Sciences. Previously she was Research Director, Clinical Content & Applications for Thomson Scientific; Director, Pharmaceutical Market Applications with Dialog. She also worked for Caredata (formerly Citizen 1 Software, Citeline) as Director, Healthcare Client Services.
Snow is a frequently requested continuing education instructor. She has developed and presented courses accredited by SLA, MLA, the Drug Information Association, and the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education. She is the author of “Drug Information: A Guide to Current Resources” (Medical Library Association & Neal-Schuman Publishers, 3rd ed., 2008) and has published more than 70 journal articles on a variety of biomedical search topics.
Additionally, Snow has been honored with the Distinguished Member Award by SLA’s Pharmaceutical & Health Tech Division in2006. She was the winner of the UMI-DataCourier Award for Excellence in Online Published Columns and has been singled out as one of 25 experts in the book “Secrets of the Super Searchers” (1993) and its sequel, “Super Searchers in Health & Medicine” (2000).
