The vast amount of real-world data collected during routine clinical care is a treasure trove of safety information – but there are challenges to overcome before this rich source of evidence can be applied to pharmacovigilance. Patrick Ryan from Johnson & Johnson discusses how to harness real-world data for patient safety.

In partnership with the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) and the European Health Data & Evidence Network (EHDEN) consortia, UMC researchers are exploring how real-world data can help prioritise and validate signals in pharmacovigilance. Read about their latest collaboration on Uppsala Reports.
Another important player in the real-world data space is the Data Analysis and Real World Interrogation Network (DARWIN), which aims to provide timely and reliable evidence from real-world healthcare databases in the EU to improve the safety and effectiveness of medicines.
