CONFERENCE PRESENTATION · SCDM 2021 Global Conference
Once upon a time in 2019 (BC - Before Covid) and happily ever after 2021 (AC - After Covid): A saga of realizing the benefits of real world data (RWD)
- Session Type: Panel Discussion
- Session Level: Advanced
OverviewTo improve outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, organizations have been using real-world data for efficient and effective decision-making.
While randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are pragmatic, these have stringent eligibility criteria and may not fully represent patients seen in everyday clinical practice. As such, results from RCTs are not always generalizable to less idealized settings and more diverse patients. Real-World Data (RWD) can provide supportive evidence for the effectiveness of medical interventions in more heterogeneous populations than RCTs.
The diversity in RWD sources provides researchers with the ability to conduct a variety of RWD evaluations on a range of topics. Different sources allow different questions to be asked, not only offering diverse real-world data (RWD) findings, but also adding to the knowledge gained from traditional RCTs.
- Electronic health records (EHR)
- Wearables, health-related apps and mobile devices
- Claims databases
- Product and disease registries
- Health surveys
- Social media
Real-world evidence (RWE) can be generated by different study designs or analyses that not only need reliable data of good quality, but also need to be approached with strong methodological considerations. The FDA is also due to release new guidance on the use of RWE by the end of 2021, and it’s likely that the guidance will be influenced by the agency’s most recent experiences with RWE and COVID-19.
Please join our session wherein our eminent panelists will share their experiences and use cases of RWD during pandemic and will guide us to develop RWD strategy in the new normal.
