Basker Gummadi, IT Strategy & Digital Transformation, Digital Innovation, Bayer U.S. LLC

10:55 KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Patient-Centric Trials: Moving from What’s the Matter with Patients to What Matters to Patients

Lisa Shipley, Vice President, Global Digital Analytics, Merck

The overall percentage of potential patients that participate in clinical trial is very low. Engaging patients and removing barriers to patient participation in clinical trials is critically important to the development of new therapies to improve human health. Digital technologies are poised to improve patient participation and experience and shift from a site-centric to a patient-centric model. Pharmaceutical companies and CRO’s are exploring a number of different paradigms deploying technologies such as, telemedicine, wearables, and home-sampling.

With the rise and integration of new technologies into clinical trials – mHealth, wearables, sensors, the internet of things – there is an unprecedented opportunity for revolutionizing how the industry performs clinical trials. New technology can help move clinical trials from sites directly into patient homes.

  • What are the latest successes and failures?
  • What are the barriers and challenges? How is the industry leveraging technology to make this a reality?
  • What are patients saying about their experience with virtual trials?
  • What does this mean for the future of clinical trials?
