The previous two editorials have been largely theoretical; a frame within which to view what is possible in pharmaceutical research. The following attempts to apply the theory to a real-world scenario.
Following on from our recent article, Why Real-World Evidence? (which can be found here). This week we take a look at the what data is available for medical research. We hope this will be a useful framework to utilise when trying to decide how best to answer your questions. The next obvious step is to try and work out how to answer them. The simplest way of doing this is to work out what variables you need to test your question, decide on a rough budget, and then consider the options. From my point of view, I find the most effective prism for this assessment comes as the Four Domains of data (see below) which includes all data types and sources possible.
We are attending Evidence Europe at the Victoria Park Plaza in London on the 22-23rd of February. For those of you who have not come across the Evidence series of conferences, they are one of the worlds premier Real-World Evidence conferences featuring many thought leaders from across the industry.
