Europe and the US are experimenting with ways to develop therapies based on their actual ‘real world’ performance. This session will discuss the benefits and challenges of outcomes-based health care, as well as the remaining barriers to implementation.

Learning Objectives

Describe the concept of outcomes-based health care; Define real world evidence, Adaptive Pathways, and Precision Medicine; Identify how we can use health data to improve the efficiency of clinical trials and research (better targeting, smaller trials, flexible models); Recognize the links between failures rates, trial sizes, and investments into new therapies.
