Randomized control trials (RCTs) are the established way for evaluation of the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals. Such studies are highly controlled and are typically conducted with a small and very specific population.
There is growing recognition of the need to supplement RCT data with observational / non-interventional studies, exploring the management of specific disease in the real world .
I.e. the treatment of various conditions under routine clinical practice rather than the controlled clinical trial environment, and the associated outcomes for patients and their caregivers.
Adelphi Real World is a global consultancy in healthcare and have conduced real world studies for over 20 years. The Bespoke team at Adelphi Real World conduct primary data collection studies (chart reviews, cross sectional surveys physicians, patients, caregivers, longitudinal studies), secondary data studies (analysis of existing datasets such as EMR and claims data) and provide client consultancy on the design of real world studies.
Typical studies focus on generating real world evidence in terms of treatment patterns, patient and caregiver reported outcomes (PROs) and unmet needs, healthcare resource use (HCRU) and comparative effectiveness.
The real world evidence generated from our research is used to inform clinical development decisions, strategic marketing and assist in demonstrating product value for clients from the pharmaceutical industry.
