Event description

Description

From Quality Improvement and pilot studies to FDA validation and clinical trials, there are multiple ways to test your digital health product and it can be difficult to determine where to start, how to do it and what to evaluate.

During this session, our panel of experts will address why validating your digital health solution – whether for clinical or economic outcomes – can benefit your product; when in your journey to commercialization you should consider a pilot study or clinical trial to validate your product; and how to test your solution in a real-world setting. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the digital health research process and how it can help their product stand out from the pack.
