WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BUILD A PORTFOLIO OF REAL WORLD EVIDENCE (RWE)?

A RWE portfolio does not only consist of clinical trial evidence (which focuses on efficacy and safety in a controlled environment). A RWE portfolio focuses on effectiveness (does it actually work in the real world) in your specific market. Your RWE portfolio supports your competitive strategy by advising how you should position your product against competitors to increase your market share and competitive advantage over time. This means taking a strategic view of the competitor landscape and crafting your competitive strategy from that.

TCD Outcomes Research is a fully fledged, full service, health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) company serving healthcare companies globally and forms part of the TCD Group. We specialise in late phase health outcomes research by studying the real world value of healthcare solutions and its economic and financial impact.

SCIENCE, ART &
COMMUNICATION:
A RWE PORTFOLIO GEARED
FOR MARKET SUCCESS

Scientific evidence by itself is insufficient to convince stakeholders of the value of your product. It requires a subtle combination of science, art and communication to convert these abstract concepts into value stories that inspire and motivate. By combining science with art, you can communicate the value of your product in a language that appeals to each of your different stakeholders. We have termed this process as Dynamic Solutions to Dynamic Questionsâ„¢:
