The Role of Digital Health Technologies in Drug Development: A Workshop
Date: March 24, 2020 (8:30 AM Eastern)
As digital health technologies (e.g. smartphone apps, wearables, and mobile-device-based tools) – hardware and software – become increasingly available to consumers, providers, and researchers, there are new opportunities to address critical barriers or “pain points,” better connect patients and health care providers, and incorporate patient input throughout the drug research and development (R&D) life cycle. However, a lack of clarity when it comes to the evaluation, selection, and implementation of digital health technologies has impeded the practical application of these innovations. This workshop will provide a venue to discuss challenges and opportunities in digital health technologies for improving the probability of success in drug development and enabling precision medicine.
