Real-world evidence (RWE) research is an increasingly important component of biopharmaceutical product development and commercialization. The growing industry need for broader information on real-world effectiveness and safety-both of which will impact the eventual reimbursement and utilization of new products-is driven by regulators, public and private payers, and prescribers, all of whom seek to better understand the impact of a new product in a real-world setting. The result is that real-world evidence is now included earlier in the research and development phase.
