GlaxoSmithKline will make its proprietary drug research available to qualified researchers once a drug has completed the approval process or been abandoned. Glaxo has previously released data about its treatments for malaria, and will add information about 200 of its experimental drug compounds to fight tuberculosis to a secure Web site. The new policy applies to global clinical trials since 2007, and all trials starting in 2013.

Three new companies were chosen as top picks at the recent “DC to VC Health Tech Startup Showcase” held in San Francisco in conjunction with the annual Health 2.O Conference. Beyond Lucid brings technology to EMS services, Aidin offers a platform for matching patients with post-acute care providers, and CarePlanners connects patients and caregivers with a network of nurses, social workers and insurance specialists. The annual event, sponsored by Morganthaler Ventures, brings together D.C-based policy makers with Silicon Valley investors and entrepreneurs.

Inovalon, a provider of data-driven healthcare solutions, brought together 200 of the industry’s top experts at its 2012 Customer Congress to discuss improving the quality and delivery of healthcare. Attendees at the three-day event discussed reducing costs and improving outcomes for patients.
