What You Need to Know About Capturing Real-World Evidence through Chart Reviews

UBC experts Krista Payne MEd, Executive Director of Value Demonstration; Safety, Epidemiology, Registries and Risk Management and Principal Scientific Consultant, and Dara Stein, MSc, Senior Research Associate, Value Demonstration, Safety, Epidemiology, Registries and Risk Management, have written a comprehensive overview on retrospective chart studies online now at PharmaPhorum.com.

Patient chart review studies have long been used to evaluate burden of illness and patterns of patient care.  Manufacturers should keep in mind that these studies can also be applied as a way of capturing real-world patient-level clinical, healthcare and safety data.

Real-world evidence needs addressed by chart reviews include but are not limited to:

  • Patient characteristics (demographics, medical history, concomitant illness, etc.)
  • Patterns of care, such as visits by type of healthcare provider, medications, diagnostics, procedures, accident and emergency visits, hospitalizations
  • Effectiveness (clinical outcomes)
  • Patterns of medication use including off-label prescribing
  • Unmet clinical need
  • Safety (documented adverse events (AE), serious adverse events (SAE), etc.)
