Session 3: Data Sources of the Future

Session Chair(s)

Michael  Seewald

Head Real World Evidence

Novartis Pharma AG, Switzerland

Real-world data can support to develop, evaluate, and monitor the safety and effectiveness of medicines and medical devices, especially once inherent limitations such as biases, gaps in coverage, outcomes are addressed with appropriate methodology. However, many hurdles have to be overcome in areas like data access, transfer, interoperability and quality before real-world data sources can be considered adequate for a given evidence generation purpose. This session will explore the long-term creation of data assets in the real-world, including the role of trusted, multi-stakeholder collaborations, the need to agree on data formats and standards, promoting the wider use of data to continuously enhance the data asset in a long-term, sustainable fashion. A panel discussion in conclusion shall help to raise a call to action in support of broader collaboration and focusing on approaching data as a strategic asset.
