Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific Program Planning Committee and PDA, we are proud to present the second edition of the 2022 PDA Medical Devices and Connected Health Conference and warmly welcome you to Dublin/Ireland.

Connected Health solutions involving data platforms, connectivity, software, and sensors for health have the potential to ensure better individual patient care through the provision of more effective treatments, while at the same time reducing efforts for healthcare professionals to improve efficiency in healthcare systems.

Effective and efficient means that digital health is also confronted with the variety and complexity of the medical device and pharmaceutical regulatory scheme, the insurance/reimbursement setup as well as the management of data security and information misuse.  Although success has been demonstrated in many areas, there are also challenges in showing effectiveness, especially at scale in real-world situations with the evidence that meets stringent demands of the various healthcare stakeholders and which also aligns cost with benefit.

What kinds of opportunities and threats are associated with digital healthcare from the industry as well as from the regulators’ point of view? Which experiences and learnings are emerging from previous work and particularly from the recent pandemic situation? And finally – which options exist for digital solutions to leave a positive impact on healthcare, while reducing its environmental footprint?

We are convinced that an open dialogue and experience exchange between all parties involved is the most appropriate way to “unleash the power” of medical devices and connected health.

We have received excellent speaker abstracts and believe that we have put together an engaging conference program that focuses on these issues and will provide an ideal environment for an interactive discussion around the opportunities and challenges offered by connected health solutions.

We would like to thank the Scientific Program Planning Committee and PDA for setting up this excellent agenda as well as all contributors and presenters for their insightful input into the conference.

Join us in learning, discussing, and contributing to the emerging benefits of digital health, and be invited to enjoy two interesting and insightful conference days with us!
