How will digital medicine evolve over time?

When we founded this society, we were inspired by the FDA-NIH Framework, that stated: “Effective, unambiguous communication is essential for efficient translation of promising scientific discoveries into approved medical products. Unclear definitions and inconsistent use of key terms can hinder the evaluation and interpretation of scientific evidence and may pose significant obstacles to medical product development programs.”

This manifesto is our working draft to drive the field forward. Like any piece of software, it is a living product that requires maintenance and updates to maintain its relevance. The role of the society is to maintain a focus on the areas of the field that need the most attention, clarification, and guidance, and we will continue to refine frameworks and definitions to support those developing and adopting digital medicine technologies.
