RWE & Big Data Realization

The biggest challenge in using RWE for a wide range of applications is the heterogeneity and uneven quality of various real-world data (RWD) sources. Curation, harmonization, and integration of unstructured data sets are the critical need of the hour.
Excelra’s expert curators use a techno-human approach to unlock tremendous value by converting messy real-world data streams into analysis-ready regulatory-grade datasets. We create custom workflows to codify elements like adverse events, disease staging/progression, and other medical concepts based on client objectives.

REALIZING THE TRUE VALUE OF REAL WORLD DATA

Meaningful real-world evidence (RWE) is becoming indispensable for securing patient and prescriber access to products.  One of the biggest challenges in using RWE for a wide range of applications is the heterogeneity and uneven quality of various real-world data (RWD) sources. Curation, harmonization, and integration of unstructured data sets is the critical need of the hour.

Excelra’s data scientists are adept at merging data from various sources as per client’s strategic initiatives, and the related need for a high or low evidentiary bar. FDA recommended data transparency guidelines are followed for good quality assessments and reducing uncertainty; this ensures the RWE produced is fit for informing coverage and formulary decisions.

Excelra’s expert curators unlock tremendous value by converting ‘messy’ real-world data streams into analysis-ready regulatory-grade datasets. We create custom workflows and can embed analytical solutions and algorithms to understand disease progression, patient journeys, real world effectiveness, burden of illness, adherence/persistence/switching, variation in outcomes by sub-group analyses, and other value-based concepts as per client objectives.

Enhancing the patient’s voice for better outcomes and value communication through Social Media Analytics

A colossal amount of data from healthcare communication is being added daily throughout the world on various social platforms. Patients, patient advocacy groups, providers, influencers, caregivers, thought-leaders, and industry experts are constantly adding to the one-way dissipation of information in addition to the two-way interactive information exchange.

These healthcare conversations from patient forums and social media platforms can be tapped to provide unique insights for understanding not just the metadata variables but also the key topics of concern, healthcare trends, patient sentiment, author perspective, and unmet needs. Excelra empowers our partners to aid patient-centric research by providing inputs for planning clinical trials and for creating more meaningful patient engagement programs.

Typical problems we can solve for our partners

  • Natural history of disease (incidence and prevalence)
  • Creation of custom workflows to codify elements like adverse events, disease staging/progression, and other medical concepts based on your needs and objectives to help realize the true value of RWE
  • Comparative effectiveness, safety and other outcomes
  • Burden or cost of illness (to help determine any unmet needs)
  • Post-marketing commitments (such as PASS, REMS)
  • Patient population of interest and any likely risk factors (such as adverse events)
  • Support estimated inputs needed for HE models and evaluations
  • Patient stratification and clinical trial inputs
  • Creation of parallel arm and single arm clinical trials from RWD
  • Market access plans targeted at patient sub-groups
  • Influencer mapping
  • Identifying conversation trends and patient concerns from social media listening for clinical trial inputs and brand strategy
