She leads the development and delivery of Clarify’s offerings for biopharmaceutical companies and clinical research organizations (CROs), part of the company’s platform of advanced analytics solutions.

“When it comes to improving patient journeys, Kara Dennis envisions a more holistic approach — one in which all relevant data shape healthcare decisions in real-time,” says Taren Grom, editor, PharmaVOICE. “It’s this vision that landed her on the 2019 PharmaVOICE 100. Her drive to bring innovative technologies and new approaches to data analytics in the highly regulated world of clinical development in a safe, scientifically rigorous, and meaningful way is truly inspiring.”
In addition to leading Clarify’s life sciences business, Dennis heads up the company’s New York office. Since joining Clarify in August 2018, she has helped to build a world-class team that is part of an ecosystem fostering innovation in healthcare, in a city rich with diverse talent and opportunities to give back to the community.
“Kara is constantly looking for new and better ways to improve care delivery for patients who are navigating the health system and those participating in clinical trials,” said Clarify Health CEO and Co-Founder Jean Drouin, MD. “She is a change agent at the forefront of efforts to leverage data derived from sources outside of typical research settings and use that insight to better understand clinical pathways and optimize care journeys for patients. We’re thrilled that PharmaVOICE has recognized Kara and her inspiring commitment to advancing technology that will ultimately help life sciences organizations deliver value to patients and challenge the status quo in healthcare.”
