Institutionalizing Real-World Evidence Across Your Organization

Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Wednesday, March 22, 2017

This presentation will explore how exponential growth in the variety of real world data sources and their quick adoption across functional business units is necessitating the need for the standardization of real world data and analytics platforms.

These standardizations enable Life Sciences organizations to institutionalize their Real-World Evidence (RWE) knowledge base while keeping the cost of support and scale manageable. The presenters will review Knowledgent’s approach and framework for RWE standardization, governance, and collaboration and explore how SAS’ RWE architecture can facilitate it. SAS’ architecture can significantly increase speed to insight by being agnostic to the data sources, allowing selection of complex patient cohorts without coding, and providing rapid analytics results while still being extensible, flexible and transparent.
