PR Newswire

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Real World Evidence (RWE) generation is vital for producing the health outcomes and safety data that payers are using to drive formulary and reimbursement decisions.

However, as pharmaceutical companies take steps to improve their RWE capabilities and utilization of RWE vendors, they are challenged to manage the complexities of RWE generation as well as how to identify the right vendor to work with.

A new Best Practices, LLC study, "Understanding Future Trends in the Changing Landscape of Real World Evidence Generation," delivers current insights on questions such as:

  • What types of RWE study methods are pharma companies most often using?
  • What data collection methods are being utilized for RWE generation?
  • To what extent is pharma utilizing outsourcing for RWE projects?
  • What characteristics identify the best vendor to use for RWE projects?

For this research study, Best Practices, LLC engaged a total of 25 pharmaceutical leaders in 19 companies involved with RWE generation.

According to the study, the top RWE vendor traits are Experience on Similar Studies, Scientific Expertise, and Prior Experience with Vendor; respondents identified these three vendor characteristics as the most valuable features they are looking for when evaluating vendors for the 16 RWE study methods examined in this research.

The study, which contains more than 1,000 metrics, has chapters devoted to these issues and RWE study methods:

  • Overview of RWE Study Methods Utilization, Data Collection Methods & Outsourcing
  • RWE Budget and Rationale for Outsourcing
  • Economic / Reimbursement Studies
  • Observational Studies
  • Non-Safety Registries Studies
  • Intervention Studies
  • Extension Studies

Pharmaceutical leaders will be able to use the research results to compare their RWE programs with industry peers.
