"Collaborative Community" is a term of art used by FDA to designation public private partnerships (and often academic-industry) to help forge and communicate healthcare innovation. FDA devotes a website to this topic - here.
A great example is PICC - the Pathology Innovation Collaborative Community, PICC. It will hold the annual in person meeting June 27-28, 2023, in Washington DC. Find them at Le Meridien, Arlington. Fee circa $500. PICC falls under the auspices of the broader MDIC, Medical Device Innovation Consortium.
Gotta love the subtitle: Unlocking the Potential of Digital Pathology and AI through Regulatory Science.
Find the meeting here:
The website includes a 3 minute video promo.
Here is some text from the description:
"Unlocking the Potential of Digital Pathology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) through Regulatory Science. “
Why you should attend:
- Network with domain experts with keen interest in moving regulatory science forward through in-person interactive working sessions
- The most comprehensive overview from a multistakeholder organization on digital pathology and AI
- Opportunities to share your unique point of view with the entire community
- Synergize to large scale project(s) to create practically relevant regulatory science tools and templates
During PIcc23, thought-leaders, regulators and pioneers in digital pathology will network and discuss:
- Advances in digital pathology and AI applications
- How these advances create new incentives to tackle the next big hurdle, to broadly implement digital pathology and AI/machine learning (ML)
- Impact of regulatory and legislative developments digital pathology and AI tools in diagnostics due to the end of covid pandemic public health emergency
- Perspectives from patient advocates about the potential of digital pathology
