Real-World Evidence Conference

Translating Insights into Real-World Value


Short Course: October 12 | Virtual

Short Course: October 13 | Virtual

Conference: October 16-17 | In-Person

In a market that is constantly adapting and adjusting to the needs of the healthcare field, real-world evidence (RWE) is becoming increasingly important for regulatory and reimbursement decision-making. Historically used for post-market safety monitoring, RWE is now integrated throughout the product development lifecycle, and has led to the real-time analysis of data to better understand and gain insights on disease, approaches to treatment, and how to substantiate coverage decisions.

DIA’s Real-World Evidence Conference will explore new, innovative applications of RWE, and deliver cutting-edge insights to leverage this knowledge to advance healthcare decision-making.
