Virtual fireside chat with Boehringer Ingelheim
Think Global, Act Local: Best Practices for Holistic
 Real-World Evidence

May 9 2023


Tuesday, May 9 2023

How do you strategically generate Real-World Evidence (RWE) at a global level and translate it into local, geographically specific evidence? What are the best practices for generating holistic evidence and integrating it into your organization's decision-making processes?

Learn more in our next Climedo Connect fireside chat on May 9 where we will discuss:

  • How to strategically think about RWE generation globally and locally
  • How to generate evidence in a holistic way
  • Some best practices in the field of RWE from Boehringer Ingelheim

Our expert Paul Petraro, Executive Director & Global Head RWE Analytic Evidence Center at Boehringer Ingelheim, will share insights on how to consider the entire evidence generation process, from study design to data collection to analysis and interpretation, in order to generate high-quality, actionable evidence that can inform decision-making and improve patient outcomes.

Real-World Evidence refers to data that originates from real-world contexts, including electronic health records, claims data, patient registries, and various other sources. Its rising application in healthcare decision-making renders it a critical constituent of evidence-based practices. By offering an all-encompassing perspective on healthcare issues, RWE presents a compelling tool to enhance patient outcomes and influence policy decisions.

In addition to the fireside chat and Q&A with Paul, you will have the opportunity to join various live surveys, network with other attendees and, of course, ask our experts any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you there!
