The convergence between digital health and the life sciences is creating new opportunities to transform patient care as well as drug discovery and development. From wearables to machine learning, digital technologies are easing data collection from patients, increasing medical adherence, reshaping clinical trials, and offering new insights into real-world applications of therapies. Embedding digital health tools into the life sciences will also allow new therapies to better work within the growing value-based healthcare system that relies on data and measurable outcomes.

Join MassBio for our inaugural Digital Health Impact 2019 event at the InterContinental Boston at 510 Atlantic Ave, Boston, MA 02210, part of Biotech Week Boston, as we examine the current state of digital health as it relates to the life sciences, the challenges facing its growth, and opportunities for collaboration. Through keynotes, panel discussions, and case studies, we’ll explore new strategies for life sciences and digital health innovators to converge and ultimately deliver better outcomes for patients.
