What is a digital biomarker and how can they be used in patient healthcare?
Digital biomarkers are quantifiable, measurable health indicators that can be collected and analysed in the cloud or, as capability improves, at the network edge. Comparing data that’s gathered at the individual level with big data from wider cohorts or populations can help explain, influence or predict health-related outcomes. Devices incorporating digital biomarker technology can be implemented in different formats - wearable, implantable - even ingestible1.
Our digital biomarker experts have created an interactive online resource that demonstrates various digital biomarker types across six categories (Vital Signs, Physical, Chemical, Neural, Visual, Audible), and the value of using multiple digital biomarkers in the detection and management of certain conditions.
