This presentation will use cancer therapeutic development as a use case for exploring the emerging role of real-world evidence. The current availability of electronic health records with rich information about patients gathered during their routine care is rapidly changing the landscape of evidence generation in medicine. Recent advances have accelerated the introduction of new diagnostics and treatments into clinical practice.
- Understand potential sources of real-world data for use in evidence generation to guide drug development and patient care.
- Describe the opportunities and limitations of observational research using real-world data derived from electronic health records.
- Review examples of real-world data use in oncology drug development.
