Conference Abstract

Real World Evidence (RWE) is an emerging concept; however, it’s relevance and interpretation has grown exponentially in recent years.

There’s More to Simply Collecting RWE

Self Care Catalysts is at the forefront of a movement towards collecting, measuring and making sense of the complexity of healthcare through increasingly naturalistic approaches. We believe that orienting the interests of all healthcare stakeholders around the perspective and experience of patients can not only align the objectives of a complex system, but shape methods of data collection and measurement to inform solutions that are more likely to succeed in the real world, beyond the highly restricted and controlled environments of traditional clinical research.

Significance of Digital Health and Data within a Complex Healthcare Eco-System

Self Care Catalysts’ online conference will clarify the importance of RWE in decision-making across the continuum of care, and how to collect it responsibly and with as little bias as possible. We will share the principles that underly our disease-agnostic platform that is customizable to address specific condition-related needs, and how we co-developed it with inputs across the healthcare ecosystem by combining “high-tech” with “high-touch” personal patient engagement to be patient-centered and easy to use.

Neutrality and Impartiality of Patient Data

We will also discuss the importance of neutral and impartial data. By providing a “common ground” for health care providers, drug developers, commercial teams, payers and regulators to interpret, we believe we more accurately represent the experience of patients within the health care system, and mitigate the biases that can emerge when data collection tools are too disease or brand specific.

By bringing together stakeholders from across our ecosystem to share their perspectives on RWE, the conference will be a one-stop-shop to bring you or your organization up to speed on current thinking and best practices related to RWE through discussion, case studies and more. We are looking forward to your participation on October 30th!
