Is Real World Evidence A ‘Life-Saver’ For the Healthcare Industry?

Dec 28, 2018

The advent of new, life-changing drug necessitates the need to ensure that the right treatments are being provided to the right patients. Real-world evidence (RWE) is a great tool to ensure better patient outcomes and drug efficacy. Information collected outside of a clinical trial such as electronic medical records, medical charts or medical claims data, with patient identity markers removed to maintain patient privacy are useful data sources for real-world evidence. Furthermore, this data is known to complement the knowledge gained from traditional clinical trials.

Real World Evidence in Patient Care

Controlling costs and ensuring enhanced quality are two critical imperatives driving healthcare transformation. This can be achieved to a large extent with the help of real-world evidence. Clinical trials are crucial to examine the safety, ethics, and efficacy of new therapies. Best practice clinical interventions, which can offer an improved means to prevent, screen for, diagnose or treat disease are also equally important. Real-world evidence represents a paradigm shift in how research is conducted by using data from actual events in heterogeneous populations that occur in clinical practice. It can include pragmatic trials in diverse clinical practice settings with everyday patients and clinicians. Real-world evidence is derived from examining several factors when testing how FDA-approved interventions affect targeted patient populations, particularly those with unmet medical needs, to create best practices for existing as well as new treatments.

How does RWE benefit providers?

Most providers have been engaged in some sort of clinical trial. These engagements look narrowly at the effect of a therapy, usually a drug, with a homogeneous population that is being treated in a controlled setting with specialized personnel. But in reality, the front-line clinicians are the ones truly driving these therapies forward across a diverse range of healthcare settings. Real world evidence research is focused on short- and long-term outcomes, cost implications, patient-reported outcomes, and other data. It helps hospitals and health systems enhance clinical practices and drive greater value around targeted medical approaches – examining the efficiency and the quality of these interventions and how they impact short- and long-term patient outcomes.

How is RWE changing the healthcare industry?

Real-world evidence is a science and data-driven best practice that provides a meaningful assessment of costs when delivering new and innovative treatments. Based on patient outcomes, real-world evidence can also lay the foundation in establishing effective risk-sharing agreements between manufacturers, payers, and providers. The advent of electronic health records has proved to be a favorable step for real-world evidence. Mergers and acquisitions are garnering greater importance in the healthcare landscape. Providers and life sciences companies in the healthcare industry should seek out partners with robust clinical and financial healthcare databases to provide easier and quicker access to insights derived from real-world evidence.
