Speaker: Morgan Romine, MPA
Presented from Duke
Broadcast Link: Seminar
At Duke, all seminars live or broadcast will be held in Hock Auditorium from 4-5 pm.
The need for real-world data (RWD) and evidence (RWE) on patient outcomes is driving a number of high-priority policy efforts on the national and state level. From payment reforms based on the value that medical products achieve in actual practice to regulatory considerations for utilizing RWD and RWE within the Food and Drug Administration’s decision-making framework, these efforts in turn will depend upon the availability of trusted data and evidence networks. This presentation from the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy will provide an overview of the policy needs driving the development of such networks and the remaining data and methods challenges to making more routine use of RWD and RWE.
