Title: DIGIMED17 – Transforming Healthcare Through Evidence-Driven Digital Medicine
Speaker: This list will be updated as speaker biographies become available.
Host: The Scripps Translational Science Institute
Sponsor: Academic Partners include TSRI, Scripps, the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the CTSA National Consortium
Location: Scripps Seaside Forum
Notes: A thoughtful exploration of the clinical evidence necessary to drive the widespread uptake of digital health solutions will be the focus of Scripps Translational Science Institute’s 2017 Digital Medicine conference. 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. 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.
