7 Sessions Worth Attending at ViVE 2023

Healthcare delivery and data collection has evolved significantly in recent years due to advancements in technology, changes in regulatory guidelines, and the need to make care more accessible during the pandemic. Digitization of electronic health records (EHRs), digital health solutions, and the extension beyond the patient-provider relationship to include virtual clinical trials have been critical components of this evolution. When combined with regulatory changes enabling data sharing, these solutions have improved access to care and efficiency of clinical research. However, it has also resulted in a vast amount of data silos. Ultimately, the accelerated digitization of the healthcare system has become encumbered with disparate data sources, which drives the need for data interoperability solutions and harmonization to unlock deeper insights.

ViVE 2023, a healthcare conference focused on digital health and innovation, will showcase the latest advances in healthcare data management and decentralized clinical trials, exploring cutting-edge technologies and strategies for leveraging data to improve research and patient care and improve health outcomes. The ViVE conference will feature many notable sessions with industry leaders. As a health technology company driving innovation through aggregating, cleaning, and standardizing data for many advanced use cases, we at CareEvolution are particularly excited about these seven sessions:
