A two-day conference that will explore the clinical evidence necessary to drive the widespread uptake of digital health solutions is being hosted by the Scripps Translational Science Institute in partnership with NatureResearch. DIGIMED17: Transforming Healthcare Through Evidence-Driven Digital Medicine is scheduled for October 5-7 at the STSI in La Jolla, California.
"Currently, there is a shortage of clinical trial data investigating the role of digital medicine, although this evidence is critically necessary if it is to achieve its potential to transform care. There is a clear need for a forum to present, discuss and debate existing evidence and how to best obtain it in order to accelerate change," according to an overview on the conference website. "This one-of-its-kind, interactive conference will be led by a faculty composed of leaders in this burgeoning field, with a mix of developers, investigators and providers. The principal goal of the conference is to jumpstart efforts to drive the widespread incorporation of evidence-based digital medicine solutions for more-personalized, individual-centric care to improve outcomes, advance satisfaction and decrease costs."
