83bar exec Kate Hermans to speak at DPharm19

August 28, 2019

Kate Hermans, chief business officer for pharma at 83bar LLC, will deliver a case study presentation on patient empowerment at the 9th annual DPharm: Disruptive Innovations to Advance Clinical Trials conference on September 17-18, 2019 in Boston, MA.

Joining Ms. Hermans at the conference from 83bar will be Alex Hilderbrand, vice president, and Mike Zangrilli, product manager.

83bar has developed a fully integrated digital health technology and concierge platform. The result is that it enables individualized patient activation at scale. That’s why the use of this platform for clinical trial recruitment shows such meaningful results for study sponsors, investigator sites, and patients.

The presentation by Ms. Hermans is a case study on why delivering personalization at scale is not only necessary, but possible. Key points include:

  • How to unlock the power of data for successful, effective clinical trial recruitment
  • The historic velocity of change in the clinical development and drug approval ecosystem
  • Intelligent trials and decentralized trials, coupled with a growing number of rare and ultra-rare disease trials, are changing the drug delivery model.
  • Ways to integrate the recruitment platform can expand your patient pool, make your trial faster, less complex, and ultimately less costly.
  • Innovative approaches to drive patient empowerment in the clinical trial process.
  • Improving the quality of the patient experience and its real-world implications for development of new therapies and medical devices

The presentation is the first by 83bar at the DPharm Conference.  The company is among more than 20 pharma companies which are reporting on specific innovations to better deliver new medicines.
