With growing acknowledgment of the limitations of randomized clinical trials (RCTs), and a corresponding recognition of the discoveries revealed from practice experience, regulators, private and public payers and physicians are increasingly looking towards real-world evidence to inform their decision making. A close and methodical examination of patient records can uncover significant unmet needs and reveal surprising findings that have the potential to influence value assessments and product adoption. Chart abstraction studies are a proven method to capture and analyze real-world, patient-level data; however, many approaches fail to capture the nuanced thinking of the treating physician. As an innovator in this methodology, Cardinal Health offers collaborative approaches to capture real-world data from charts and EMR, going beyond manual abstraction to include direct insights from our broad physician networks. Defining the appropriate methodology, measures and physician recruiting criteria can drive meaningful success, timely and cost-effective results from these initiatives. Join Cardinal Health experts in a discussion regarding approaches to extricating insights from patient chart data and more importantly, the physician’s head.
