Maximising Patient-centricity, remote patient monitoring & operationalising m-Health
Join the global digital healthcare transformation
CONNECTED CARE -DELIVERING CARE OUTSIDE CLINICAL SETTING
KEY THEMES FOR THIS YEAR: Artificial Intelligence, Patient Centricity & m-Health
Building on success of our last two meetings, we are pleased to announce the launch of 3rd Global Digital Healthcare Innovation & Transformation 2018 which is scheduled to take place on 23-24 May 2018 at Hotel Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow, London, UK. It is co-located with 2nd Annual Artificial intelligence and mHealth for clinical trials summit 2018.
Today’s healthcare system face many challenges; increased costs, aging population, empowered consumers, fragmented care and wasted resources, and therefore the way we consume and receive healthcare needs to be re-invented. Healthcare systems focus on sustainability and value while balancing three fundamental imperatives – expanding access, improving quality and managing costs. Meanwhile digital technologies are enabling approaches that dramatically facilitate those fundamental shifts. In 2018, both social and technological trends will drive the transformation of healthcare. Vertical business integrations happening in US (merger of CVS-Caremark and Athena) will surely can be a key in transforming healthcare.
With more than 450 active start-ups and companies in a variety of Digital healthcare related fields, PBM’s Global Digital Healthcare Innovation and Transformation 2018 is Europe’s most prestigious annual business conference in the digital healthcare sector. It features leading technologies, and serves as the focal point for entrepreneurs, senior pharmaceutical and healthcare corporate executives, and investors from UK, Europe and Abroad. The conference aims to mark a milestone in Global Digital Healthcare Industry.
3rd Annual Global Digital Healthcare Innovation & Transformation 2018 provides a unique look at the role of technology in advancing modern medicine, healthcare and wellness. With advances in precision medicine, mobile, AI and deep machine learning, plus new devices quantifying our health, we’re poised for great transformation. It's both a business opportunity and world imperative
- Advances in technology are making extraordinary impacts on brain health. treating Alzheimer’s, depression, addiction and other neurological conditions
- Digital therapeutics, aka “software as drugs,” are offering inventive, revolutionary treatments to today’s most taxing conditions and diseases
- From clinical-grade wearables and telemedicine to a retail revolution, empowered consumers are taking control of their health
The event will take place on 23-24 May, 2018 at Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow Hotel.
Registration fee - £799 plus VAT
Start-up fee - £399 plus VAT. Registered Start-ups can exhibit for free.

Digital Healthcare: Key Trends 2018
In a blogpost Lisa Suennen, Senior Managing director of GE ventures explains “In 2016 it was big data, in 2017 it was AI, in 2018 it’s blockchain. Every year has its fad and, even when the fad has some reality to it, too much money ends up backing buzzwords with no clear path to market adoption”. Just watch — this year we will see money flowing into blockchain like never before and this may well be a great technology to solve some key problems in healthcare. But with health systems still figuring out their EMRs and with payers saddled with dozens of non-interoperable and antiquated systems, it’s not going to take off like wildfire on the adoption side.

Get real about data - True patient and consumer engagement means platforms and mobile apps show results
Clinical devices are widely accepted by regulators because they are able to provide accurate and reliable information. Most devices used by clinicians are Class II and follow the 510(k) pathway. However in recent years, digital technologies have emerged that build on the functionality of well-established clinical devices, resulting in tools that retain the ability to gather regulatory-grade data but are very convenient. For example, innovators have developed blood pressure monitors that do not require patients to come on-site to have their blood pressure checked or to download data from a home machine.
Vertical business Integration will transform the healthcare landscape
There are two types of wearables found in clinical trials – consumer-grade and clinical-grade. Most people use and are familiar with consumer-grade devices like Fitbit and Apple Watch, for example. They are relatively inexpensive and easy for people to use, so they tend to fit seamlessly into participants’ daily lives. That said, the data they generate is not yet considered clinically valid, and thus can only be used in an exploratory fashion during a clinical trial. However conversely researchers can employ specialized clinical-grade wearables, commonly known as actigraphs, to gather primary and secondary data.
Consolidations - If you don’t have 10 apps to manage your money, why would you have 10 apps to manage my health
Although sensors are found in every other wearable devices, they also play a larger role in health technology. In fact, sensors are currently being used to measure a variety of physical properties that were previously difficult or impossible to track. Smart medication bottles are probably the most common type of sensor used in clinical trials today. These technologies tell researchers if a patient took medication and when that occurred, allowing them to better understand a patients’ adherence to treatment protocols.
AI, Voice will be major tech, Blockchain needs more time
With the advances and penetration of mobile and cloud technology in clinical industry software applications are poised to help patients better manage their health by tracking a plethora of factors, including heart rate, sleep, fertility, physical activity, weight and even certain disease symptoms. There are two ways in which researchers use mobile applications in clinical trials. First, pharmaceutical companies are leveraging companion apps, which are designed to be paired with medications.
