Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies ran an all-day session at the annual Week of Health and Innovation (WHINN) in Odense, Denmark. CIFS’ program attracted over 40 experts from health and data organisations. We presented strategic foresight and futures studies in the health sector, concepts that are used to reimagine the future of the health sector, such as the Humanome and decentralised clinical trials. Also, we had a panel discussion on the newly started Phase V project on decentralised clinical trials, where CIFS is a contributing partner

Decentralization has not yet been applied within the cryptic act of drug pricing. The key advances of decentralization in supply chains and clinical trials prove promising. Consensus reaching is crucial. Stakeholders are unlikely to favor transparency as that is the method by which they can fulfill their fiduciary responsibility in maximizing profits for companies. Therefore, without government intervention through stringent policy, stakeholders will not easily give up on rising profit margins
CIFS embarks on PhaseV, to deploy a digital platform for continuous decentralised health data collection. Heavyweights of Danish healthcare join a consortium to develop patient-to-doctors communication tools to evaluate effects of obesity, diabetic foot ulcers and chronic urticaria treatments, based on indicators related to life quality
