With today's technology, electronic data are coming from everywhere: social media, smart phones, activity trackers, electronic health records, insurance claim databases, patient registries, health surveys. This Real World Data (RWD) is having a huge impact on how clinical research is being carried out and we even have not seen the end of it.

The increasing number of health data poses is stretching us methodological and is raising ethical and legal. Identifying opportunities and tackling the hurdles of this new data-rich environment to get the best out of it is key to success.

During this half-day seminar, we will tackle the RWD from different angles: the pharma industry as well as the hospitals. We will also discuss how to pursue, collect and use Real World Data in tomorrow’s trials. Check out the complete agenda below and for more information. 

Real World Data is tomorrow. But today is already time to embrace it.
