The latest “Healthcare Rethink” podcast hosted by Brian Urban features Stacy Charlerie, US Regional Head and Data Strategy Director at Parexel. Charlerie may be part pharmacist and part business leader. Still, one thing’s sure: she’s all about that data! In this episode, Urban and Charlerie discuss how data analytics is becoming integral to patient-centric care and clinical research.

Charlerie shares her transformative journey from a pharmacist to a leader in healthcare data strategy, illustrating the importance of integrating real-world data to improve patient outcomes. With her roots as an immigrant striving for educational opportunities, Charlerie’s story reflects the broader narrative of determination that fuels innovation in healthcare.

The conversation highlights the often-overlooked aspect of healthcare: the individual behind the patient label. Charlerie advocates for a holistic approach to treatment, informed by data that encompasses socioeconomic factors. At Parexel, she works on leveraging massive datasets to not only enhance clinical trials but also to ensure they are inclusive and representative of diverse populations.

This episode is a powerful reminder that at the heart of healthcare transformation is the need to view each patient as a person with unique stories and challenges. Charlerie’s steadfast voice has consistently championed this perspective, a stance that has gained momentum as the industry wakes up to the pivotal role of personalized care in the post-pandemic world.
