Moving the Blockchain for Clinical Trials Conversation from Why to How & When with Industry, Regulatory, and the Patient


At the first Blockchain for Clinical Trials Forum in February 2018 in Orlando, FL the #Blockchain4ClinicalTrials Initiative was launched. This forum brought together 100 passionate global pharmaceutical professionals, technologists, clinical trial service providers, regulators, academia, clinicians, and other stakeholders to exclusively evaluate the viable use cases for blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs). This is where the WHY was established.

In November 2018, we will assemble US and Europe’s leading consortia and working groups, pharmaceutical clinical operation and digital innovation teams, and government project leaders to discuss lessons learned through POCs and pilots of public and private blockchain projects. This progressive step forward will provide a clearer vision as to what solutions are needed to technical, business, and regulatory challenges. The outcome will determine HOW and WHEN.

Confirmed Participants include Consortia and Workgroup Leads from:

  • Pfizer’s Patient Data Donation on Blockchain Project
  • Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) Blockchain Enabled Healthcare Topic Group
  • phUSE Emerging Technology Blockchain Healthcare Working group
  • European Platform on Changing Healthcare (EPOCH) Working Group

Integrating the Patient Perspective on Why, How, and When
The initiative is focused on empowering patients as center to revolutionizing clinical trials process. Therefore, the forum will have two patient advocacy leaders (from the US and Europe) speaking as to how blockchain can empower patients, preserve the right to privacy, and cultivate trust into the clinical trials process. This is the forum where the patient’s voice will be reflected.
