Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 12, 2017
PhysIQ, a Chicago-based company that provides a Personalized Physiology Analytics (PPA) and highly scalable cloud-based platform for ambulatory patient monitoring and clinical trial support, earned DPharm Idol 2017 honors at the 7th annual DPharm: Disruptive Innovations to Advance Clinical Trials conference in Boston.
Launched in 2005, PhysIQ leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to empower digital health. The company provides an FDA 510k-cleared data analytics platform that processes an individual's vital signs from wearable sensors to create a personalized dynamic baseline.
"Winning DPharm Idol 2017 is a fantastic development in what has been an enormously successful year for PhysIQ," said Chris Economos, Vice President of Business Development for PhysIQ. "Pharma and biotech companies are now realizing the transformational potential of continuous biosensor data, and PhysIQ is proud to be working with the biggest names in the industry to collect and analyze these data sets using its FDA-cleared machine learning analytics. We are grateful to the DPharm leadership for bringing together such an impressive event to showcase the exciting innovation happening in real-world data collection and clinical trials overall."
"PhysIQ offers a solution which has multiple applications," DPharm Idol judge Laura Galuchie said. "We liked their ability to establish a unique 'normal' for each patient by analyzing data from commercially available biosensors. Having real-time alerts for clinicians, both in and out of clinical trials, is a game-changer."
The DPharm Idol competition enables participating companies to showcase their disruptive clinical trial services or technologies. The following companies participated in this year's DPharm Idol:
