Prior to joining Signant, Dr. Everhart held positions of Vice President, Medical Affairs and Vice President, Medical Informatics at Chiltern and Covance, and most recently consulted independently in the areas of Medical Monitoring, Medical Data Review, and Physician Adoption of Technology. He has worked in all phases of clinical development in numerous therapeutic areas including Allergy & Immunology, Cardiovascular, Hematology & Oncology, Infectious Disease & HIV, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Psychiatry, Respiratory, and Rheumatology. With Signant Health, Dr. Everhart will help accelerate the application of Signant’s intelligent eCOA, rater training, predictive analytics and other data quality monitoring products outside of CNS disorders.
Speaking on this appointment, Mike Nolte, CEO of Signant Health, said, “Biopharmaceutical sponsors’ focus on complex indications continues to accelerate challenges with speed, quality and risk, as they work designing studies that result in breakthrough therapies. Signant recognizes that deep expertise and innovative technology can combine to ensure constant monitoring, real-time feedback and oversight that promote confidence and quality in this increasingly complex environment. We believe that bringing outstanding technical and clinical minds together creates expertise to design and deploy proven methodologies, while innovating in differentiated technologies like intelligent eCOA, evaluating data quality and consistency as it is generated.
