The pervasiveness and omnipresence of wearables is having an impact in how clinical trials are executed and creating a new field of Real World Evidence, for which trials are no longer confined in space and strict in protocol. Ultimately RWE in clinical trials enables new means of continuous non- obtrusive data collection for biopharmaceutical research. This combined with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence will enable personalized medicine, for which the concept of Digital Phenotyping is key.
To turn this vision into reality, technology innovation is key. In this talk imec will provide insights about investigational devices, algorithms and data cleaning techniques. The investigational service presented by imec is a toolset designed to jumpstart data collection for medical device development and drug trials- going from raw data collection to actual insights. Moreover our development efforts cover going from a proof of concept to idea of a companion diagnostic tool all the way to a final medical device. Join us in defining and being part of this digital revolution.
