Data

A look at the management and continuous integration of heterogeneous biomedical data, including aspects of trust, identity, privacy, protection, safety, ethics, quality, sharing, transparency, data assets, permission, consent and more.

The dominant characteristic of our current healthcare industry is its compartmentalized, disintegrated business model; one manifestation of which is the accretion of massive volumes of data from disparate sources that must be harmonized at great effort in order to be of use for analytic modeling and augmented decision support. Healthcare, wellness, and society in many ways have become victims of the very information created to serve them in this domain. In a medical system where consumer trust, practitioner burnout, and generalized (average) and intuitive care protocols dominate, the future of a functional model that provides access to personalized interactions and outcomes is most directly confronted by the challenge of curating and acting on relevant data, in-the-moment.

Our thesis is that there are three dimensions of managing actionable information that when symbiotically networked together, form the fulcrum from which to pivot all advancements on behalf of a healthier society.

Ted DellaVecchia

Governance

A look at the critical aspects of automated process governing across these systems which capture the intent, requirements and coordination across all stakeholders from patients to industry.

To explore the governance challenges of ecosystems deploying blockchain and AI, this track will explore the role of governance in successful partnerships. Defined generously by Wiki as “The term for the way a group of people such as a country [or healthcare providers] do things,” governance includes a number of open-ended concerns. Just what are the challenges for healthcare providers that need new, governance-enabled collaborative models?

Medical Devices

A look at medical devices cybersecurity, authentication, life cycle management, monitoring and more.

It is critical that the design manufacturing operation of medical devices that doctors and patients rely on operate as intended which sometimes require long validation and approval cycles. Once approved, it is also challenging to ensure that components are manufactured and tested according to specs.

How can emerging technologies like DLTs and AI be leveraged to address some of these challenges? For instance, can the use of blockchain enhance the supply chain robustness by adding an easier traceability and transparency mechanism? Is it possible to reduce the approval process of a medical device using these technologies?

Another aspect is the trusted and reliable connection and operation of the device. Can these technologies be leveraged to mitigate cybersecurity risks?

A look at real world applications of internet of medical things (Non-regulated, 510k, PMA devices; Prescribed vs. Over-The-Counter; Clinical Use vs. Remote Use; Clinical Trials Support: Imaging; Genomics; Physiologic) and EHR Interoperability.

The use of wearable devices in healthcare ranging from smart watches to smart glasses will impact disease prevention, detection and influencing precautionary measures. Advances in modern technologies, such as, Internet of Medical Things, 5G, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence have played a role in ensuring the viability of healthcare wearables. However, several challenges related to security and privacy need to be resolved for fully maximizing the use of these wearable devices.

Your Health App may be Illegal

There is a robust history of ethical challenges and solutions in healthcare and health research. Drawing from historical atrocities in human experimentation, the Belmont Report released in the 1970s outlined a framework for ethical behavior in human subjects research. This framework, which underlies laws and regulations that govern medical research, may apply to many of the health-related AI projects using iterative machine learning to create generalizable algorithms.

Sean Manion, PhD
Chief Scientific Officer of ConsenSys Health
Keynote: Ethical AI Access to and Control of Critical Infrastructure Technology
Artificial Intelligence has the potential to reshape healthcare and significantly improve quality of life, provided that it is developed with security controls (such as blockchain) and privacy principles (including ethics) in mind. AI is not a panacea; it is a tool that we must train the rising generations to better develop and use. However, like any tool, the potential benefits of AI are inhibited by the potential for aberrant use. AI systems and machine learning algorithms are only as reliable and accurate as the data we provide and only as ethical as the constraints incorporated into the developed code. It behooves us all to develop frameworks that increase transparency, incentivize collaboration, incorporate ethics, require privacy protections, and mandate security controls.

SESSION #8 | 2 June 2021 | Decentralized Clinical Trials

Decentralized clinical trials have rapidly expanded in number and scope during the global pandemic. Many research and technology groups are looking at how to capture the value of these decentralized trials and expand it moving forward. Technologies like blockchain and AI are part of the solution. This session explores how these emerging technologies can play a problem-solving role in the expanding field of decentralized clinical trials, and how might the expanded capabilities of blockchain and AI in healthcare fundamentally transform clinical trials, providing more access and greater reward to a larger number of people.

Welcome and Series Introduction
