Disruptive Innovations Meeting in Boston – Save the Date
The DPharrm meeting is the meeting for those committed to change and modernization of the clinical trial ecosystem by involving modern technology, the patients’ voice, virtual trials, crowd sourcing, etc. Dr. Mitchel is honored on the esteemed Advisory Boardand Target Health was fortunate this week to host the first planning meeting.
Six years ago, the first DPharm addressed virtual clinical trial models, adaptive design thinking, the role of EMRs in clinical data, open source, telemedicine, and self-reported patient data among many other ideas. By the time the 2nd annual DPharm program took place, the concept of applying disruptive thinking to clinical development had taken root, with many attendees bearing titles with clinical innovation in them. Fast forward to 2015, the 5th annual program addressed a jam packed agenda on the latest in innovative thinking to advance clinical trials.
Not all innovation is disruptive, of course, but as a community, we must continue to drive those changes that enhance the patient experience and ultimately bring more drugs to those who need them most in the most in an efficient and cost-efficient way.
Save The Date! September 20 – 21, 2016 The Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, MA
A Foggy Day in the Big Apple
Last week an unusual dense fog hit the city. While foggy days of course happen, the unusual weather patterns all over the world, including tornados in the winter in the US are ominous signs of climate change.
