The advent of mobile, digital, and wearable devices marked a shift in the way technology permeates our everyday lives. Connecting medical, wellness, wearable and implantable devices, and sensors such as Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) via the internet presents vast, new opportunities for participation in clinical trials. We will talk about the impact this has on reducing the burden and putting the patient experience first and describe the best practices for utilizing CGM in clinic trials sharing recent experiences from live trial.

Learning Objectives

Identify continuous glucose monitoring; Discuss why glucose variability is becoming the new “gold standard” in diabetes research; Describe how wireless biometric sensing is fundamentally changing the way clinical research will be performed in the future.
