Advancements in technology are impacting clinical trials and accelerating the speed and quality of new therapies being brought to market. To date, the adoption of digital elements has largely been through small incremental changes over time. But as we have seen across the Healthcare and Life Sciences industries, COVID-19 has accelerated the need for change for clinical trial process. In the last year, more virtual and digital aspects became a necessity for some trials to continue. Fortunately, this transformation has delivered some clear benefits for Pharmaceutical companies and entire patient populations. But these advancements did not occur without challenges and risks that needed to be carefully considered and mitigated.
The panel will evaluate various aspects of a clinical trial ‘digital twin’ – where a digital representation of every physical aspect exists – and provide perspectives on the benefits, challenges, and design considerations. Join us to learn more about:
- Details of clinical trial ‘digital twins’
- Benefits / Challenges / Risks
- Design considerations considering current technology and limitations
This virtual panel will be moderated by Taren Grom, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of PharmaVOICE.
