"The ideas and tools that we demonstrated seemed to strike a chord with the attendees and the judges and have made a real difference with the study teams we are working with," Bohlen said.

Blue Sky Broadcast, a leading provider of virtual meeting and online training solutions for clinical site training, has been selected by The Conference Forum as the Disruptive Innovator of the Year at the first annual DPharm Europe 2015 Conference. The San Diego-based organization offers a complete suite of solutions to deliver web-based training—live or on-demand—helping to accelerate site initiation, increase compliance, and reduce costs associated with training site personnel.

Jim Bohlen, Vice President of Business Development for Blue Sky, presented at the conference on the benefits and successes achieved through web-based training solutions for both sponsors and site personnel. Throughout his presentation, Bohlen noted this is still a disruptive approach for some in the industry, especially with the increase in global trials. As adoption continues to grow in the pharmaceutical space, so too does the need for more effective and engaging virtual meetings and on-demand training.

Blue Sky demonstrated this fact, showing how they address this need with innovative features and tools designed to engage end users and ensure training objectives are met and applied.

"The ideas and tools that we demonstrated seemed to strike a chord with the attendees and the judges and have made a real difference with the study teams we are working with," Bohlen said.

Since 2002, Blue Sky Broadcast has helped life science organizations reduce risks and improve training consistency. During this time, Blue Sky has worked with more than 100 life sciences organizations to deliver thousands of virtual events to their unique audiences. This experience and ongoing commitment to advancing the conversation in the pharmaceutical space contributed to the Blue Sky win at the DPharm Europe 2015 Conference.

"We are very grateful to DPharm for including us in the competition and feel our selection validates what we are doing in the industry and for our clients," Philip Forte, Blue Sky Founder and CEO, said. "We feel this type of recognition will help advance the adoption of our platform for clinical trials, and lead us to greater success by helping more sponsors improve their site training initiatives."
