An ageing population means an urgent need for better and effective treatment for age-related illnesses. Despite billion-dollar investments for drug development for these conditions, especially neurogenerative diseases, there is a low success rate and it is a slow process. A major challenge is the lack of clinical outcome assessments (COAs) that are sensitive and able to detect changes and treatment efficacy during clinical development. Established COAs are often subjective, providing only a snapshot of patients’ conditions. Digital health technologies (DHTs), such as wearables, can collect health-related data continuously and remotely in patients’ real lives. Deriving clinical insights from the data from such technologies could transform clinical trials and accelerate clinical development in neurodegenerative conditions.

Learning Objectives

• Understand through case illustrations how continuous real-world data can be used to inform the development of more meaningful outcomes.
• Gauge the analytical, ethical and operational challenges faced in harvesting such powerful data and for scaling up such technologies.
• Understand how this data can be used to evaluate drug effectiveness.
