Prieto-Alhambra Talks RWE in Decision-Making During Pandemic

May 14, 2020

University of Oxford’s Daniel Prieto-Alhambra in a recent interview with The Evidence Base discussed the role of real-world evidence amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the interview, he also highlighted a recent virtual “study-a-thon” hosted by the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics community.

There are three areas where RWE will shine, he said:

  • characterizing COVID-19 patient symptoms, care needs and outcomes to plan care delivery;
  • predicting who is most at risk of hospital admission and of poor outcomes, so that we can target and inform management; and
  • rapidly and accurately studying the safety profile of potential drug targets, as well as, in the short term, assessing their real-world effectiveness once data are available.
