Real-world data (RWD) comes in all shapes and sizes — and levels of quality — which can impact the ability to create real-world evidence (RWE) to inform critical business decisions. Electronic health record (EHR) data collected at the point of care gives a unique and thorough view into patient encounters. It also gives a detailed view into the patient journey and physician thinking, which is often found in physician notes. Specialty medical societies play a unique role in their management of qualified clinical data registries, which helps bring together this data — from tens of thousands of healthcare providers — at scale.

Verana Health is the steward of three specialty medical registries focused on ophthalmology, urology and neurology, exclusively curating both structured and unstructured EHR data from these registries to produce quality RWD. This data helps drive quality insights for life sciences teams across the drug or device lifecycle. Therefore, teams can meet regulatory requirements, understand treatment patterns and outcomes, track burden of disease, recruit sites and patients for trials and more.

Join this webinar to learn how to look beyond claims data to inform critical research. The session will feature a real client case study focused on the demographic and clinical characteristics over time of patients undergoing minimally invasive glaucoma surgery.
