The New Wave in Real-World Evidence – Integrated Datasets
Tuesday, May 23 at 5:00 PM
Breakout session speakers:

Sherri Rose, PhD
Associate Professor in Department of Health Care Policy
Harvard Medical School
Lulu Lee, PhD
Director, Health Outcomes Research
While patient-level healthcare databases continue to proliferate globally, the challenge to any healthcare researcher is how to find the optimal database to solve the research question at hand. Electronic Health Records (EHR), disease registries, claims, and patient-reported surveys each have their strengths and weaknesses. Thus, the ideal solution is a combination of fields from one or more databases. The integration of these databases can present significant challenges around sample size, patient privacy, and mixed data types; however, if combined carefully and accurately, can provide huge benefits in understanding more about a disease or patient characteristics.
This interactive workshop will include:
- The current state of real world evidence (RWE) databases and the typical ways in which these datasets are used in health outcomes research, including the strengths and limitations of each dataset
- A novel approach to combining disparate data sources
- Case studies of how different data sources are integrated for use in health outcomes research. For each database integration case study, the presenter will discuss the reason why database integration was necessary, some of the challenges they faced performing the integration, how they overcame these challenges, and the value that the final integrated data brought to the research question at hand
The session will be invaluable to healthcare researchers and biostatisticians working with different RWE databases, who are seeking novel approaches to creating a more complete dataset.
We highly recommend your attendance and participation.
