SEEING THE FOREST FOR THE TREES: DEVELOPING ROBUST RWE USING DATA LINKAGE
Robust real-world evidence (RWE) must be supported by appropriate real-world data (RWD). As a result of the fractured nature of the US healthcare system, RWD reside in silos (e.g., administrative claims, electronic medical records, laboratory results, hospital administrative), each with its own strengths and limitations. Thus, evidence generated from any one data source may be insufficient to build a robust value story. Historically, HIPAA privacy rules have made it challenging to combine data sources that address their respective limitations. However, new technology has emerged that enables HIPAA-compliant data linkages aimed at achieving a 360 degree view of a patient’s care to support evidence development.
