Future of Evidence and Smart Health Conference

Leveraging RWE to advance healthcare decision-making.


Following the success of the Future of Evidence and Digital Health Workshops, we now transfer these topics to a new conference in the EMEA region – the DIA Future of Evidence and Smart Health Conference. Combining regulatory and science perspectives in a unique forum, this conference discusses opportunities and implementation strategies within the EU data and digital landscape – to support regulators, industry, and patients. Explore latest developments in data usage and data storage, innovative approaches to integrated evidence, and how artificial intelligence and machine learning can transform drug development. The conference will gear you up to drive actionable outcomes and contribute to advancing the EU regulatory space.

The conference program follows two main tracks:

Real-world Evidence (RWE)

RWE data is a valuable source to help optimize clinical trial design and support decision-making for regulators, physicians, and other healthcare providers. We explore how to define the quality of different types of RWE sources and how to best approach a unified framework for clinical data collection. Understand how various stakeholders are leveraging RWE to advance healthcare knowledge and decision-making processes, which are increasingly in the hands of artificial intelligence tools.

Digital Health

With a deep dive into the fast-evolving digital healthcare ecosystem, you will be introduced to novel wearables and data collection methods. You further get insights into new formats of digital intervention in health. In interdisciplinary sessions, we approach hot topics like the Dynamic Dossier in the cloud, rapid reviews, and digital therapeutics which could help fulfill unmet medical needs caused by limitations in traditional therapies.
