Menu Back to Digital-Technology-in-Clinical-Trials


As a direct result of the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and due to circumstances beyond our control, DIA has decided to postpone the Digital Technology in Clinical Trials Meeting originally scheduled for March 30-31 to a date later in the year.

The health and safety of our entire DIA family remains our top priority. Following recent reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) and escalating health concerns around the spread of the disease, our decision to postpone, while unfortunate, is necessary and unavoidable.

DIA’s mission – to work across the healthcare continuum to ensure patients receive the therapies they need – is essential during times like these. DIA acknowledges the time and effort that has gone into speaker and attendee planning and preparing for DIA’s Digital Technology in Clinical Trials Meeting, and trusts that everyone will understand our need to respond to currently evolving health concerns in a responsible manner.

You will not be required to re-register for the Digital Technology in Clinical Trials Meeting, your current registration will be transferred to the new date once confirmed. More details will be provided in the coming weeks. For more information, please review this list of Frequently Asked Questions

We regret any inconvenience caused by this change of schedule and appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Thank you for your continued support of DIA and our global mission


Digital technology is transforming the drug development process. The rise of wearable and mobile technologies along with cloud technology, Artificial Intelligence and related platforms, now enable the collection of frequent, specific, and multidimensional data throughout the length of trials. These technologies have the potential to enable innovative trial designs, improve the patient experience, act as recruitment and retention tools, and establish novel end points in clinical studies.

With these technologies, large amounts of data are collected. How to best address evaluating fit-for-purpose, standardization, ethical concerns, and regulatory approaches, are key issues to address in the digital era.

DIA’s Digital Technology in Clinical Trials Conference will bring together thought leaders from regulatory agencies, biotech, pharma, patients, and academia to discuss the latest advances, challenges, and forward-thinking approaches for implementing digital technology to improve clinical trials. While the conference will focus on the impact of digitalization in clinical trials today, we will make time to explore future applications and how they may enable the clinical trials of tomorrow.

So, My Fitbit is Clinical Trial Grade, Right?

The promise of wearables and sensor data includes collecting data that demonstrates new investigational products are safe and efficacious and/or that fewer site visits are required; thus, making clinical trials more efficient, less intrusive, and less expensive. This presentation will break down the elements of wearables selection, evaluation, and inclusion in clinical trials, allowing you to better understand the support structure required for wearable sensor use. This presentation will also touch on integration touch points between wearables and other eClinical systems.
