Imagine being able to use a smartphone and a wearable device that detect changes in your behavior, sleep, movement and social interaction. For people affected by brain disorders, such as depression, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy, this information could help to predict, and maybe even prevent, a relapse. For those with dementia, it could allow users to track changes in their cognitive abilities and make it easier for them to communicate with care givers and loved ones. For researchers, the data gathered could aid in the identification of endpoints for clinical studies. This session will look to answer such pressing questions as: How can we ensure the quality of the data generated? How can researchers, regulators and patients keep pace with rapid developments in technology? And most importantly, how can we best capture those breakthroughs that have the potential to improve patients’ lives?
