Patient-Centered Outcomes Assessment

Whether your goal is to support product claims, facilitate market access, or improve patient-clinician communication, our Patient-Centered Outcomes Assessment (PCOA) team provides a comprehensive set of services to capture the patient voice in clinical trials, observational research, and clinical practice:

We develop and provide support for all types of clinical outcome assessments (COAs), including patient-reported outcome (PRO), observer-reported outcome (ObsRO), clinician-reported outcome (ClinRO), and performance-based outcome (PerfO) measures.

To provide you with comprehensive support from clinical development to post-marketing, the PCOA team routinely collaborates with other RTI-HS experts in health economics, market access, health-preference assessment, survey research, and biostatistics.

You need evidence to show the efficacy, safety, and value of your products to your stakeholders. These days, real-world evidence is needed at every stage of the product lifecycle.  It is playing an increasingly critical role to support successful regulatory approval and post-authorization commitments, market access, and outcomes research.   

Our experts have been collecting and analyzing real-world data for decades and understand evolving guidelines and methodology.

We know that the best approach starts with a plan. Once a strategic plan is in place, gaps in data can be discovered and addressed. When you need additional data elements, we can help you identify and incorporate new research – whether that is conducting prospective or retrospective studies or via new analytics. Beyond that, we can create reports for regulatory and HTA purposes as well as publications, interactive tools, and models to help you communicate your results.
In our quest to help answer important research questions, at RTI Health Solutions we employ various methods to generate real-world evidence for a variety of end-users.

We know it’s important to utilize available data sources throughout the world to demonstrate the value of your product.

We understand that while real-world evidence is needed for all therapeutic areas, it looks different based on the needs of the specific products and patient populations.

Our researchers are happy to meet with you to show you how our integrated project teams can partner with you to help you get the most out of your real-world evidence.
