The Digital Biomarkers & Digital Measurements Summit is back with a bang! Bringing you 2 full days of cutting-edge content and an industry leading speaker faculty, this event provides you with a one-stop shop of all things digital biomarkers & digital measurements ensuring you leave the event with key takeaways and the knowledge to accelerate your own digital journey. We’ve got a lot to catch up on and this Summit has got you covered!
Starting with the differences between digital biomarkers, measurements and endpoints, through to commercialization, this Summit will provide you with a truly end-to-end learning experience. Learning is at the heart of the agenda and through a variety of dynamic formats, you will be able to accelerate your understanding of the industry in just two days.
Digital biomarkers and digital measurements have long been explored but with the recent changes to healthcare and pharma, there is greater interest than ever before in what they can offer. This Summit will help define this new wave of the industry through exclusive discussions with the movers and shakers, and this is your chance to be part of them.
The COVID-19 public health emergency shifted a number of protocols and operating plans for clinical research and care alike. As more trials and care shift to the home, convening folks working on these problems in a common summit will help us ensure that more high quality measures support patients at home.
Digital Biomarkers & Digital Measurements Summit is ideally timed to enable critical conversations between stakeholders enabling the progression of medicine toward a patient-oriented, decentralized, tech-enabled future.
The Digital Biomarkers & Digital Measurement Summit convenes experts from across the healthcare and clinical research paradigms to discuss the most pressing issues facing the field. If you have a remote patient monitoring strategy, or if you’re building one, you should be here.
The Digital Biomarkers event is a critical place to learn, evaluate, and “take inventory” in an industry that is the front door to enabling the promise of precision medicine. I’m particularly intrigued to learn about how innovators are thinking about the validation of digital biomarkers to be used as clinical endpoints, then how they can be embedded into digital therapeutics for real-world use.
