New York Academy of Sciences to host mHealth conference focused on The Power of Wearables, Sensors, and Apps to Transform Clinical Trials

The New York Academy of Sciences mHealth Conference

About the conference

Mobile technology has become a ubiquitous part of everyday life and the practical utility of these devices for improving human health is only now being realized. Wireless medical sensors, or mobile biosensors, is one such technology that is allowing the vast accumulation of real-time biometric data which may hold invaluable clues for treating some of the most devastating human diseases. From wearable gadgets to sophisticated implantable medical devices, the information retrieved from this mobile technology has the potential to revolutionize how clinical research is conducted and disease therapies are delivered in the coming years.

The New York Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with leading clinical trials software firm Medidata Solutions, will assemble professionals from the fields of science and engineering, analytics, healthcare, business, and government to explore the promise wearable biosensors, along with integrated mobile apps, hold in improving the quality of patient care and clinical outcomes. This one-and-a-half-day conference will focus on groundbreaking device innovation, data optimization and validation, commercial platform integration, as well as clinical implementation and regulation.
