Register today to attend Measuring What Matters, a symposium focused on intensive longitudinal measurement. Scheduled for 19-20 July 2021, this virtual event will consist of session presentations and live Q&As with the speakers. Recordings of the symposium will be archived for future access for registrants unable to attend the live presentations in July.

The registration deadline is 12 July 2021. More information about the symposium’s theme, registration rates, schedule and sessions is available below.

About the Symposium

As we collect data more frequently in both clinical and real-world studies, patients are often assessed using intensive longitudinal measurement techniques, such as daily diaries, wearable devices, and/or sensor technology. This allows the recording of data at regular intervals between site visits, the capture of acute events as they occur for clinical monitoring, and/or continuous monitoring in order to answer research questions that were previously unanswerable through traditional data collection.

Despite our ability to collect more data, our knowledge about evaluating new data collection techniques and using these rich data sources effectively is limited.

This symposium will cover

  • patient-centered approaches to endpoint selection/development
  • the subsequent identification of appropriate methods and technology for assessing these endpoints
  • the different ways we currently summarize this data and how this leads to a loss of information
  • ways to maximise our data using improved summary methods and more complex modelling techniques

Attendees will leave this symposium with new insights and better understanding on how to better use, analyze, and interpret intensive longitudinal data generated from daily diary and wearable devices in a more effective and complementary manner.
