Next Generation Diabetes Management: Combining Glucose Levels, Lifestyle and Clinical Data for Better Outcomes
Effective diabetes management requires much more than tracking glucose levels. Diet, sleep, activity levels, and cardiac health all influence metabolic outcomes and outcomes in other chronic conditions.
Advancing Oncology Clinical Trials with Real-World Data
By virtue of sheer volume, oncology trials can set the stage for overall clinical trial innovation. Moreover, oncology as a therapeutic area has seen the closest interplay between clinical trial data and real-world data, from the creation of external control arms created exclusively with real-world data, to long-term follow-up registries, to pragmatic clinical trials.
The Data Ecosystem in 2025
Every year, more and more patient data comes online. Technological advances and the development of new analytics solutions make previously inaccessible data increasingly accessible. Meanwhile, exploding numbers of new patient and consumer-facing tools introduce novel data types.
Privacy, Ethics, and Patient Benefit
As healthcare innovation accelerates, a fundamental responsibility of our industry remains the ethical stewardship of patient privacy. In addition, as the industry drives the design and implementation of new data solutions and technologies, we are responsible for doing so in a way that successfully maximizes patient benefit.
How Data Sharing Can Help Us Better Understand COVID-19
The United States’ healthcare system is one of the most technically advanced in the world, yet it struggles to answer even simple questions about COVID-19 due to the remarkable fragmentation if its health data. This panel will highlight examples of effective data sharing in the wake of the pandemic as well as the myriad missed opportunities for collaboration.
Decentralized Clinical Trials: The Bridge Between Trials and Real World Evidence
Given the intense focus on the development of COVID-19 vaccines, clinical trials emerged at the forefront of the national conversation. This also brought increased interest in “Decentralized Clinical Trials” (DCTs): technology and practices that allow for more patient-centric trial operations.
Issues in Maternal Health and Insurance Coverage
The United States has the highest maternal mortality rate in the developed world. While maternal mortality rates have dropped globally year-over-year, they are persistently rising in the United States. Studies show that access to healthcare is a critical lever for improving outcomes for mothers, particularly women of color.
Insights and Innovation Emerging from COVID-19
The entire medical infrastructure received the largest shock in a century with COVID-19. It also paved the way for some of the most impressive feats in modern health care, from historically fast clinical trials to large, interdisciplinary, inter-organization data sharing.
Better Serving Vulnerable Populations and Managing Health Disparities
Health and healthcare disparities are driven by complex and interlocking factors within and beyond systems of care. In the wake of COVID-19, the new and long-standing disparities in healthcare access, delivery, and outcomes are increasingly evident.
America’s COVID-19 Data Gap
The United States’ health care system is one of the most technically advanced in the world, yet is struggling to answer even simple questions about COVID-19. Despite millions of data points in the real world, billions of dollars of research money, and trillions of dollars of economic impact, there are a number of basic questions that we still cannot answer:
