- Flatiron Health is evaluating the emerging role of data and technology to reimagine the clinical trials process from design through execution. Their technology is standardizing electronic health record data to a common data model, enabling millions of electronic health records in a single common dataset.
- The 21st Century Cures Act presents an opportunity to use regulatory-grade real-world evidence. Characteristics of real-world data and real-world evidence have the potential to improve the clinical depth and completeness of health data as well as scalability and generalizability.
The addition of other linked datasets will provide a broader set of data and contribute to the expansion of use for other systems. The more datasets, the more “triangular” the sets will become. The more that high-quality real-world datasets are used in concert, the better.
Linkage to data claims is an integral piece of the high-quality real-world data puzzle. With large portions of oncological data, necessary records can be abstracted, providing simplicity in linking.
