Due to the increased miniaturization of sensors and circuitry, the health and wellness industry is seeing rapid proliferation in the number and diversity of wearables and sensors to provide personal wellness applications. This provides opportunity to collect greater and richer data during clinical trials and post-marketing studies, and also to develop beyond the pill strategies to support launching or marketing products.

This session explores the impact of wearables and sensors on clinical trial conduct and participation. We also consider how to ensure the validity and acceptability of health outcomes that are derived from wearables data. Finally, we consider how pharma is levering wearables and sensors to deliver beyond the pill strategies to support patients and physicians in the effective use of their treatments.

Learning Objectives

Describe the impact of wearables and sensors on clinical trial conduct and participation; Identify how pharma is leveraging wearables; Discuss the importance of validity and acceptability of the data from wearables.
