Overview & Why Attend

DPharm in a post Covid-19 world. 

DPharm is the conference that challenges and reports on innovation to shake up the way we do clinical trials to reduce the burden to patients and investigators. We challenge how we want clinical trials to look by 2030. Covid-19 has forced our industry’s hand to move up this deadline. The analog healthcare system is not going to serve patients any longer. 

As we know, Covid-19 very quickly spread to all ends of the earth due to modern technology outpacing most healthcare system’s ability to track, test and treat patients with the virus.  As we get through this crisis, we have to expedite our modern technology, innovative and strategic efforts to give patients flexibility to participate in clinical trials. We need to collect data and monitor from afar as well as to help companies develop clinical protocols that limit clinic visits and so much more. 

In 2020 we celebrate the 10th annual anniversary of DPharm. We are working on developing the agenda that reflects the urgency of much needed changes in drug development through the reporting of innovative examples. In the meanwhile, see below the highlights from the 2019 event.
