Hand on board reviewing data
Real-world evidence (RWE) has become a veritable necessity for continued commercial success. The 21st Century Cures Act, passed in 2016, places additional focus on the use of real-world data to support regulatory decision-making, including both drug approvals and new indications for approved drugs. Knowing the value of RWE is one thing. But how do manufacturers realistically gather—and integrate—data that supports their product value story, both pre-and post-launch?

Saving lives with data

A new oncology product with strong clinical trial results found itself dealing with a competitor claiming to offer similar benefits at a potentially lower price point. While the manufacturer had mounds of evidence demonstrating effectiveness under real-world conditions, they had challenges in aggregating across thousands of patient records. Xcenda health economists developed and executed an effective data collection and analysis strategy, enabling the manufacturer to defend product value, fend off competitors, and maximize patient access to the effective therapy.
