About the webinar

Real-world evidence (RWE) will continue to play a critical role in evolving the way new therapies are developed and brought to market. Unlike clinical trial data, real-world data (RWD) is big data from varied sources that can provide insight beyond the traditional randomized-controlled trial.

It also gives insight to real patients who may never be part of a clinical trial due to not meeting inclusion criteria and contributes to a more comprehensive picture of the whole person and their journey, as opposed to only one dimension of a patient.

Analyzing this data can lead to a better understanding of a product’s effectiveness and safety once in the market. RWD can help identify new therapeutic indications, aid in response to regulatory inquiries and identify additional patient populations that would benefit from the therapy. By augmenting and complementing clinical trials, the chance of trial success can be significantly increased.

Join us as we demo SAS’ accelerator for RWE, covering data management, fit-for-purpose data, governance, lineage, transparency, reproducibility and rapid cohort selection as you generate robust evidence to support your organization’s objectives.
