The National Health Council on July 31 hosted a roundtable discussion focused on real world evidence and how to better communicate it with patients.
“We have a real opportunity to make sure that the patient voice is heard on real-world evidence,” said NHC CEO Marc Boutin. “Patients have a general notion of what RWE is and assume it’s already beig used, but the challenge is that it’s not very well understood.”
According to NHC, participants during the discussions explored:
- how patients define and use RWE;
- communicate about RWE;
- consider questions and concerns; and
- understanding review processes.
