Using Real-World Data to optimize study designs for the patient journey

Find out what it means to work with the patient in mind

Are you looking to strengthen your data skillset while contributing to the advancement of health science? Our global Scientific Data Organization (SDO) team is changing the way clinical trials are performed for the patient journey by utilizing data and technology to connect patients throughout the healthcare ecosystem, enabling a more complete picture of each patient’s continuity of care. Our real-world data (RWD) strategy is built on the right data at the right time, innovative big data technology, and diverse, and multi-disciplinary RWD expertise (medical informatics, data science, biostatistics, epidemiology). To that end, we have developed a real-world data ecosystem that supports a variety of strategic applications across the clinical trials research spectrum, from novel clinical trial studies enriched with RWD to patient sensor solutions.

Through our comprehensive RWD platforms and global SDO team, we are able to identify patient and consumer determinates of behavior, geographic disease, treatment and prescribing patterns, and explore RWD data and study feasibility, to effectively enable the delivery of strategic RWD applications.

Applying new techniques in direct-to-patient studies

Our SDO team demonstrates how within an individual study, they were able to tokenize a specific group of subject's data and link the data obtained directly from each patient with that same individual’s data in real world data sources. Select this link to read our whitepaper "Resolve: Parexel demonstrates data tokenization and linkage in a seamless direct-to-patient study". 

Identifying target parameters and estimation for unbiased and precise causal inference

Observational real-world data (RWD) has the potential to transform clinical research, but leveraging these data often presents a host of challenges. The "Targeted Learning in Vaccines and Immune Therapies: for high precision and the lowest possible bias" roadmap provides a rigorous framework for synthesizing evidence from randomized controlled trials and RWD.
