Meeting Summary



This conference will be the first digital health meeting that focuses specifically on the scientific foundations and the health applications of digital technologies. Taking a novel sensor or new device from concept to clinic is remarkably complex, and the technologies are evolving rapidly. Digital technology offers novel capabilities that have great potential to drive chronic disease understanding and management at both an individual and population level, including the ability to deliver real-time interventions that can be connected to a healthcare system, in a community setting or in limited-resource settings. The increased use of digital capture devices has become a universal part of everyday life; however, more research is needed to provide evidence that wearables and even more sophisticated implantable medical devices will transform healthcare delivery quality and costs. This Keystone Symposia conference specifically will aim to highlight the following: 1) The scientific/medical gaps in knowledge and opportunities to fill them; 2) Required methodologies for medical and technical validation; and 3) Specifics of data and knowledge management and the opportunities within specific subspecialties and environments. The conference will explore the landscape at the intersection of digital technologies, molecular/genomic data, and healthcare data by examining how these data streams can interface to enable precision health, drive research (patient reported outcomes, continuous phenotypes) and impact clinical care (monitoring, feedback, adherence). Highlighted will be research on technology development and the evaluation required to impact specific diseases, populations, and the achievement of specific outcomes in real-world settings both in LMICs and in areas of with limited access to healthcare. Use cases in the pharmaceutical industry will highlight the opportunity for digital technologies to provide real-world evidence that supports efficacy and safety of novel therapeutics. In addition, the regulatory and health economic considerations to translate scientific findings to health outcomes will be highlighted. This conference will highlight the widespread application of digital data for precision medicine in large cohort studies. The expected outcome of this conference will be to enhance participants’ understanding of the state of the art for capturing digital phenotyping, of consumer/patient access and comprehension, regulatory jurisdiction, health care provider/system readiness, clinical utility, personal utility, integration with the electronic health record, quality standards and ethical considerations. The conference will bring together clinicians, scientists, technology innovators, health economists and regulators to discuss and develop the new models of cross-disciplinary collaboration and business that will be required to deliver quality digital health strategies and solutions. We expect that attendees will leave this event with a clear and comprehensive understanding of digital health and will illuminate areas of synergy between academic, public and private sectors will inform a research agenda for the next five years.
