Why has the utilization of real-world data to assess efficacy lagged relative to the application of real-world safety data? Important questions must be addressed concerning efficacy data quality, endpoint surrogacy, and overall study design. This session will bring together global regulators, healthcare technologists, and drug developers to tackle the practical challenges, so that real world evidence can be more optimally incorporated into regulatory decision making.

Learning Objectives

Identify how real-world data must be collected, analyzed and reported in order to be useful in regulatory decision-making beyond the post-market safety surveillance setting.
