Digital Technology in Clinical Trials

This event is now offered in a new entirely virtual format.


As a direct and sole result of the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and due to circumstances beyond our control, DIA announced that it has decided to change the format of the upcoming Digitial Technology in Clinical Trials meeting from “face-to-face” (in-person) to entirely virtual.

For more information, please review the list of Frequently Asked Questions.


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.

Co-Sponsored with ePRO Consortium – Critical Path Institute

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.
