A common language for digital endpoint development

As we continue to advance the development of high-value digital endpoints, a common, unifying language is essential.

Successful collaboration across different stakeholders and broad adoption across multiple regulatory regions are contingent on scientific conversations where experts can talk to, not past, one another. Regulatory acceptance requires that we don’t abandon the scientific lexicon that has served us so well for decades of safe and successful drug development.

So how do we avoid getting trapped in a digital Tower of Babel as we advance digital endpoints for use in drug development?

Join experts from EMA, FDA, and the life science and med-tech industries as they discuss the lingua franca that binds them.

Referencing the digital health glossaries from the Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA), these experts will debunk some of the language trends that have caused confusion – that’s right, not everything we measure digitally is a biomarker! – and share case examples illustrating how core scientific concepts, appropriately articulated using the right scientific terms, have powered outsized success in digital endpoint development and deployment.

Striding Past the 6MWT: Complementing Physical Activity Assessment with a Consensus Set of Digital Clinical Measures

Physical activity (PA) is essential for the maintenance of health across virtually all therapeutic areas and is often recognized as a ‘sixth vital sign’. While it is becoming clear that relying on point-in-time, clinic-based walking tests are insufficient to accurately capture physical function in a meaningful way, digital health technologies (DHTs) present an opportunity to measure activity in real life.

The Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) is currently leading a pre-competitive collaboration to define a core set of digital clinical measures for physical activity (PA) across therapeutic areas. With more than 70 unique digital endpoints for PA currently being used, we aim to move away from innovating in siloes and leverage multi-stakeholder collaboration to answer tough digital measures questions, demonstrating a process of what good looks like. Understanding which digital measures matter for physical activity can speed up the development of therapeutics and enable the field to respond swiftly and meaningfully, equipped with the right evidence for decision-making.

The deadly state of surveillance capitalism

In this historical moment the gap between legislation that does not yet exist and institutional practices that are not yet regulated leaves people without the essential protections they need to maintain their privacy and their basic rights. This leaves online patient communities vulnerable to privacy violations, identify theft, scams, discrimination, disinformation, ad targeting, harassment and other forms of exploitation that can steal their security and undermine their health, wealth and overall well-being of patient populations.

This panel explored how The Light Collective, a network of tech savvy patient communities, came together to address this problem. Their founder, Andrea Downing, discussed their published research on Meta Pixel and cross-site tracking that sparked congressional investigations, and drove HHS guidance.

Increasing software innovation in digital health products through unified cross architecture programming

Digital health innovation has grown exponentially in recent years. Teams developing digital health products and technologies have developed their products using unique, multi-faceted programming modalities to support an evolving set of features to meet the diverse needs of user populations. While this has enabled products to be fit-for-purpose, this has also resulted in disparate products that exacerbate the challenges of interoperability, making retrofit and digital transformation more challenging.

Leveraging heterogeneous computing with unified cross architecture programming allows digital health products to utilize open source industry specifications that allow software application development to be hardware agnostic, which in turn enables product developers and healthcare systems using those products to deploy innovative solutions off-the-shelf on their existing heterogeneous infrastructure. As a result, the barrier to entry for many often overlooked consumers is reduced, ensuring that no matter where it’s implemented, an innovative product can remain patient-centric.

Watch as we discuss how digital health product teams can deliver groundbreaking solutions that are both innovative and equitable. Thought leaders at Intel, Canon Medical, and Oracle discuss how they’ve implemented a unified cross programming model for heterogeneous computing to increase software innovation and expand market access to digital health technologies to deliver patient-centric care solutions to those in need.
