Digital Health – What are the real-world opportunities and potential barriers to adoption?

SMi Reports: Renowned industry expert PharMechceutics Ltd to present on the Pre-Filled Syringes and Injectable Drug Devices pre-conference workshop taking place 12th January 2021.

Digital Health continues to create significant excitement in the scientific press but to date its adoption has not reflected that level of interest. This workshop explores:

  • What is digital health?
  • What are the potential opportunities for digital health?
  • What have been the barriers to adoption?
  • How might these barriers be mitigated?

The workshop will take the participants through a structured process to challenge them how to create a potential value proposition for the use of digital health in clinical development, to consider how they might validate that value proposition and develop a simulation model to demonstrate that value proposition.

Benefits of attending:

This workshop is targeted at individuals from all disciplines in the pharmaceutical product development space who have been intrigued or frustrated by the potential for digital health not having being more universally adopted.

The Workshop takes a structured design approach, which has broader applicability, to developing a compelling opportunity for digital health.
