THE EMERGING ROLE OF REAL-WORLD EVIDENCE IN ONCOLOGY

Advances in cancer diagnostic and treatment development over the past decade have created an unprecedented need for high quality evidence to guide oncologist and regulator decision making. Whereas prospective randomized clinical trials remain the gold standard for evidence development, this evidence gap demands consideration of other data sources to support therapeutic development and patient care. The ubiquity of electronic health records raises the potential for data obtained during the routine care of cancer patients to be used for hypothesis-testing. Dr. Meropol will discuss the challenges and opportunities for use of real-world evidence in oncology, and will present examples of where it may have greatest impact.
