Avicenna Alliance Position Paper - AI and Big Data effective readiness: A privacy-enhancing pathway to data access

Avicenna Alliance Members Case Studies on in silico medicine

What can CM&S accomplish? Nothing short of redefining terms like ‘patient safety’, ‘efficacy’ and ‘cost effectiveness’ by forever raising the quality of data needed to meet high standards.

To do this we need to demonstrate what can be already done to give an idea of what we could do in future with the right regulator support and uptake across the healthcare sector.

The case studies in this document give but a glimpse of the potential that has yet to be unleashed by modelling and simulation.

Avicenna Alliance White Paper - Modelling And Simulation As A Transformative Tool for Medical Devices: The Transatlantic Regulatory Landscape

This White Paper highlights the potential of computer modelling and simulation in medtech and the regulatory and political barriers to unlocking that full potential.

Developed by Members of the Avicenna Alliance from the Medtech and Software sectors as well as the FDA, this paper is the starting point for a much needed discussion on how the policy framework governing the healthcare sector can be reformed to adapt to the technologies of the digital age that can in turn be put to use to solve some of the greatest healthcare challenges facing society.

This paper was official launched in the European Parliament on 04 September 2018 and is addressed to policy makers and regulators familiar with existing EU regulatory structures as well as those experienced in the medtech or software spheres.
