"TO THRIVE AS A FIELD, DIGITAL MEDICINE REQUIRES AN UNPRECEDENTED LEVEL OF INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION. FROM REGULATORS TO WHITE-HAT HACKERS, ETHICISTS TO ENGINEERS, AND CLINICIANS TO CITIZEN SCIENTISTS, NEW COOPERATIVE NETWORKS MUST EMERGE TO ENSURE THAT DIGITAL MEDICINE REALIZES ITS FULL POTENTIAL TO IMPROVE HUMAN HEALTH." (DIGITAL MEDICINE SOCIETY)
Building off of recent advancements in the field, the Digital Measurement & AI in Life Sciences Forum focuses on ways for life sciences to take advantage of new opportunities within digital health and digital measurement; as well as how these new data can supplement existing collection strategies to drive research forward.

Join 30+ speakers, 150+ senior-level pharma, clinical trials, technology and digital health executives this May 13-14, 2021 at Merck Longwood in Boston to learn, network, develop and improve the way digital health measurement tools are being created, standardized, scaled and deployed in life sciences to improve data quality, improve patient experience & accelerate drug development.
