Overcoming the Divide Between Telemedicine and Clinic with High-fidelity Data and Low Impact Devices
•Contemporary medicine has become increasingly reliant on cutting edge tools and treatments which are built out within large medical centers – requiring patients to come to the care they need
•This care model is not adequate for those whom are disadvantaged by traditional health disparities, those whom are aging in place and, evidenced by the global pandemic, those whom we need to reduce the probability of acquiring a communicable disease
•The National Cancer Institute and, more broadly, the U.S. National Institutes of Health have been developing and funding initiatives aimed at moving the needle towards bringing care-to-patient
•This session will focus on these efforts and the strategy behind them for the future of remote patient monitoring
Christopher Hartshorn, Program Director, Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis, National Cancer Institute of the U.S. National Institutes of Health

Digital Product Development – Connecting the team as well as the device
•Case Study: Illustrating how the development process for digital medical devices requires effective collaboration across a wide range of technical disciplines
•The challenges that this can present
•Strategies to address these challenges
Chris Hurlstone, Director of Engineering, Team Consulting

Wearable injectors and digital applications
•How to reconcile the areas drug development, medical device and advanced digital applications
