The Value of a Multi-Source Real-World Data Strategy: How to Overcome Gaps and Limitations

April 7, 2021

During this webinar, we highlight strategic approaches you, and your organization, should consider as you invest in RWD to best capture the comprehensive patient journey needed to answer your most challenging questions, or seek to validate real-world endpoints. You will walk away having:

  • Built awareness on various RWD sources and their attributes, and how they are used to fill in the gaps to ensure your study design best reflects what is happening in the real-world
  • Taken the steps to understand whether artificial intelligence (AI) is a magical cure-all, or is it perpetuating inconsistencies or biases already in the data?
  • Learned how to take unstructured lab and pathology reports (including biomarker data) using NLP to ensure your study design best reflects what is happening in the real-world to generate more robust data
