How to collect and interpret the real world data that supports your brand and improves patient outcomes

Real world data is being employed across a wide spectrum of pharma’s activities and is proving itself in a range of research, clinical and commercial settings. But how do you distil the huge range of data available into reliable, persuasive evidence and actionable intelligence? How can it be applied to underpin your research, pricing and life cycle management decision making?

Harnessing the Power of Real-World Data is essential reading for market access, sales and R&D planners. Packed with insights, case studies and actionable information, this report identifies the critical issues, “must haves” and challenges of establishing and exploiting effective real world data and evidence strategies. The report is based on the insights and experiences of data analytic and medical affairs professionals working in or with US/European pharma companies see who they are.

“Without good analysis and interpretation, data are just facts and figures without useful meaning or insight”
