The two day conference will empower professionals across diverse practices to leverage combined traditional data sets and real-world evidence (RWE) to achieve clinical development.

BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- WHAT: Hosted by MarketsandMarkets, the world's largest revenue impact

research and advisory firm focused on high-growth niche markets, Real-World Data and Life Science Analytics Congress will focus on how to leverage combined traditional data sets and real-world evidence (RWE) to achieve clinical development. The 21st Century Cures Act, enacted in December 2016, requires the FDA to incorporate RWE into its programs, despite the lack of education and experience surrounding this advanced data practice. As more healthcare organizations embrace value-based payments, they are turning to RWE to diminish inefficiencies and improve clinical performance. Drug manufacturers and clinicians are also rapidly adopting RWE and realizing the new-age insights RWE can reveal. That being said, both fields are still facing immense challenges using these new-age analytics and selecting the proper technology to discover meaningful evidence.

The two-day event invites professionals from all areas of these diverse practices to discuss, brainstorm and learn with one another to propel RWE use into the future while reviewing advancements in the field. Topics covered range from the different uses/limitations of RWE to health economics and outcomes research, machine learning algorithms, data security and privacy and many more.
