Real-World Evidence (RWE) Studies & Database Projects
We also design, deliver and fully support every stage of the implementation of technology-enhanced Real-World Evidence (RWE) studies and database projects.
This includes navigating ethics and data governance, designing data acquisition strategies, gaining explicit consent from patients to remotely collect and/or extract their data, full database implementation and the ongoing project management of your study delivery.
Remote Explicit Consent
For clients that want to run a streamlined Real-World Evidence (RWE) study or database project, we draw on our expertise and the functionality of our Patient Recruitment model to gain explicit consent from patients to work with their data as required.
Extract Electronic Health Record (EHR) Data
Once the correct legal consents are in place we extract all required EHR and/or other healthcare data from wherever it may be across primary- and/or secondary-care using the specific process or technology required by the systems at each healthcare facility.
For some studies it may be necessary to link the EHR data to healthcare utilisation or other data. Our expertise allows us to navigate the complex application processes, taking away another headache for you.
Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) Data
Studies may also require the collection of Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) measures, which we support using a variety of methods depending on the patient demographic. Our team processes the returned data and supplies it to you in whatever format you require.
In simple terms, we take all this data, verify it, link it and supply it back to the sponsor at agreed points over a given timeframe. Congratulations, you are now running a streamlined technology-enhanced Real-World Evidence (RWE) study or database project.
