The Role of Observational Research & Patient Registries in Evidence Generation

Applied Clinical Trials

This whitepaper discusses the importance of observational research and patient registries in evidence generation. The modern healthcare environment is a mosaic of stakeholders, each with remarkably different demands for data addressing product attributes. These often conflicting perspectives require access to a portfolio of interventional and observational research designs sub-serving different objectives … Increasingly central is the inclusion of observational studies, including registries, which provide insights missing from traditional nterventional studies encountered in the course of drug development.
