CHICAGO, IL - Online Business Applications, the developer of the world’s most widely used medical information software solution, IRMS, will be hosting the annual IRMS Fall Workshop at the Marriott O'Hare in Chicago, Illinois on November 6th.

The workshop will focus on new and innovative technologies that will benefit the medical information field in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. These sessions will provide insight into new solutions, offer opportunities for product development collaboration and discuss industry best practices regarding new regulatory rules and requirements. Similar to previous successful IRMS workshops, attendees will have an opportunity to discuss their own industry related challenges in an open forum setting with other business professionals.

“OBA has been hosting client workshops for over a decade, usually in conjunction with the DIA’s roaming medical information focused conference held in March. Hosting an annual meeting in Chicago, where our company is headquartered, will allow for far greater participation from key members of our team and provide greater access to our expertise for our clients,” said Joe Pierce, VP of Sales and Marketing.

More than 20 different pharmaceutical and biotech companies will be in attendance for the workshop, including representatives from 8 of the top 20 companies in the industry. Each of these companies utilize IRMS as their preferred medical information software solution.

Dennis Oles, President and CEO stated, “Our clients have been critical to the successful development of IRMS and our complementary solutions throughout our history. We will continue to expand upon ways to allow the medical information professionals to contribute to the development of our new solutions.
