What We Learned at DIA: Real-World Applications to Improving Healthcare

What We Learned at DIA: Real-World Applications to Improving Healthcare

During DIA’s Annual Meeting, June 18-22, in Chicago, the UBC team met hundreds of like-minded professionals, across dozens of disciplines, all focused on the goal of gaining and sharing knowledge to improve healthcare. We know that when we improve the quality of our work, we in turn improve patient access to life-changing and life-saving therapies.

Let’s keep the DIA momentum going! We enjoyed many conversations with DIA attendees, and whether or not you joined us for the annual meeting, this summary of our booth presentations may help you keep in mind some of the questions and issues you’ll be working to solve in the months ahead. 

On Demand Clinical Insights

Our Clinical Development team showcased  technology that provides on-demand client access to clinical insights and study performance. When clients come to us with these questions, we’ve got answers:

1. How can I access on-demand, real time metrics and KPIs showing the progress of my clinical trial? What is the demographic composition of the patient population in my observational registry? 
2. I’m looking for easy to view real-time data at my fingertips. How can I quickly see graphs with critical information such as treatment patterns and retention rates? 
3. How can I find out where do we stand on the study timeline? Are we ahead? Behind?
4. What is the percentage of patients dropping out of my study?

Patient and Prescriber Data Warehouse

Through a unique combination of renowned scientific expertise and proprietary software and technology, our team showed how we are able to analyze a large volume of patient data made available to us as a subsidiary of Express Scripts and provide insight around protocol optimization, patient and site recruitment.  Our New Solutions team is assisting our customers in answering these questions:

1. How can I improve my study design to better link between indications and target endpoints?
2. How can I better target the ideal candidates for participation in my clinical trial and invite them to participate in the study?
3. How can I optimize the investigative site identification process to target the physicians who are treating a high volume of my study’s target patient population?
4. How can I find referral sources treating my target patient population for patient recruitment into my studies?

Rapid Insights Into Global Real-World Evidence

UBC’s Data Analytics & Automation team works across all therapeutic areas, in each phase of drug development, in the analysis of drug usage patterns and potential drug safety concerns. We demonstrated user-friendly software that provides rapid analytics using multiple, diverse claims and EMR data sources. Our team is working with clients to answer these questions:

1. How can I monitor drug safety using real-world evidence?
2. What is the prevalence/incidence of disease?
3. What is the current standard of care?
4. What are common comorbidities and concomitant medications?
5. How does the adverse event risks compare between two exposed cohorts?
6. What are the treatment patterns and medication adherence in a population?
