Session Description:

Digital medicine products are gaining attention as intelligent and accessible tools that can empower patients and providers to make more informed decisions leading to improved outcomes and lower costs. While the benefits of these tools are promising, the potential risks must be considered. How do we know these tools are worthy of the trust we place in them? As nutrition experts, dietitians have an active role to play in ensuring that these technologies are developed and implemented in a thoughtful manner to promote sustainable behavior change for our patients. In this webinar, I’ll cover an introduction to key terminologies used to define digital medicine products, outline how the FDA regulates these products and offer a concrete evaluation framework for determining which tool best meets the needs of your clinical or research teams and your patients.



Christine Manta, RD

I lead research for the Elektra Labs Atlas platform, which facilitates evaluation and deployment of connected technologies for remote data capture in research and clinical care. At Elektra, I lead strategy and operations for sourcing evidence to support that connected technologies are trustworthy and fit-for-purpose. I believe quality nutrition care is fundamental to improving patient outcomes and reducing costs. Understanding the landscape of emerging digital medicine products will be essential for dietitians working in health-related fields in the coming decade Prior to joining Elektra, I supported the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI)’s systematic review of feasibility studies using mobile technologies in clinical research. I’ve worked on research teams at Christiana Care’s Value Institute, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), covering a range of focus areas including health services research and malnutrition. There, I led research and evaluation projects across a variety of implementation science and patient safety initiatives, publishing several papers as first author. I am a Registered Dietitian with a master’s in nutrition from University of Pittsburgh and have worked clinically in acute and long term care settings.
