Sharing Evidence-Based Approaches to Digital Medicine and Recipes for Health System Transformation

Hosted by: NODE.Health

October 29, 2019: 12:30 – 2:00pm

Location: Rooms 253-255

Digital health solutions continue to increase in both quantity and capability. Despite significant advances, stakeholder confidence — from patients and clinicians to payers, and regulators — remains quite low. Stakeholders have traditionally relied on evidence-based, peer-reviewed studies to discern which interventions to use and support while many digital health solutions lack clinical validation. The result is that many solutions suffer from an “evidence” as well as a“transformation” gap and lack the implementation science required to make them scalable.

Led by members of NODE.Health, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is the professional home for evidence-based digital medicine that brings together a network of more than 32 healthcare systems, corporate members, societies, organizations and innovators dedicated to digital transformation in health, this session will explore:

  • The current landscape of digital medicine and how it can support value based care
  • Examples and lessons learned from real-world scalable digital medicine implementations
  • Approaches to clinical validation for digital medicine with examples and lessons learned from NODE.Health studies
  • A framework for measuring user experience for digital medicine
