“When technology has shown to significantly improve legacy systems like pharma’s clinical trials processes, it’s imperative to share these amazing advancements and include as a featured session in our summit,” said Jill Gilbert, producer, Digital Health Summer Summit. “We knew it would be an important issue to share with the array of industry leaders brought to us through our partnership with BIO.”
The discussion will also address the future impact of clinical-grade devices and sensors as they become smaller, more user-friendly and capable of wireless communication, and how the growing sophistication of these devices is impacting and expanding the breadth of data healthcare can collect remotely.
“Digital health’s impact on pharma and role in clinical trials will continue to grow as technology becomes increasingly sophisticated and pervasive in healthcare. Digital health is streamlining recruitment processes and allowing for better participant engagement and health insights throughout the trial,” said Drew Schiller, chief technology officer and co-founder of Validic. “Clinical and consumer-grade devices are driving new and improved models for the clinical trials and research studies of the future. These, and digital health technologies in general, will continue to play an important role in reducing costs and improving overall access to trial participants.”
