IEEE Technology explores enhanced technologies and methodologies

IEEE, the world´s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, and the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) has launched an IEEE Industry Connections activity entitled Technology and Data Harmonization for Enabling Remote Clinical Trials, the company said.

As a first step, an assimilated forum will be established for evaluating and testing the best methods to achieve data outputs and capabilities supporting clinical trials, which will require extensive process changes in order to evolve into the digital era.

Technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT), the Internet of Things (IoT), sensors and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), in combination with current technology systems, will be explored for improving remote clinical trials, from patient recruitment through to FDA submission.

The IEEE Standards Association, a globally recognized standards-setting body within IEEE, develops consensus standards through an open process that engages industry and brings together a broad stakeholder community. IEEE standards set specifications and best practices based on current scientific and technological knowledge. The IEEE SA has a portfolio of over 1,250 active standards and more than 700 standards under development. For more information visit http://standards.ieee.org.
