Real-World Evidence

The focus on real-world evidence (RWE) affects every stage of your drug or device development lifecycle. You need evidence to prove value to all stakeholders, including regulators, payers, providers, and patients. This means RWE is playing an increasingly critical role in supporting every aspect of successful evidence-generation programs, including clinical trials, market access, outcomes research, patient preference, economic evaluation, reimbursement, and safety activities.

Our experts have been collecting and analyzing prospective and retrospective real-world data (RWD) for decades. They stay abreast of evolving methods and guidelines to provide you with knowledgeable support, advice, and real-world evidence solutions.

Evidence You Need, When You Need It

You need to know where your research requirements fall under the broad umbrella of real-world evidence. We help by designing and conducting the right study and staying with you throughout your product's lifecycle. We recommend and have a track record of implementing proactive plans for RWE to support strategic pharmaceutical and device product development.

We start with the research questions you need to have answered and utilize appropriate methodologies and real-world data sources, to inform a strategic approach to your RWE activities. Our expert study designs and analyses ensure you can trust the results and confidently act on them.

We recognize that RWE data needs differ by therapeutic area, type of product, and patient population. Leverage the wide-ranging expertise we’ve acquired from working on hundreds of different products in nearly every therapeutic area to help commercialize your pharmaceutical and medical device products.
