DaVita Clinical Research®’s Health Economics and Outcomes Research bring real-world evidence to your project. As part of a health care provider organization, we have first-hand knowledge of health economics challenges and the ability to deliver solutions based on practical and empirical evidence that support access and appropriate utilization of new drugs and therapies. Our large, clinically rich databases provide a comprehensive patient picture, and our recognized health outcomes experts work with you to analyze, interpret and communicate your study findings.
Although the concept of using real-world evidence makes intuitive sense, in practice, the quality of the underlying data, appropriateness of the research question for that data, and the robustness of the methodology affect whether or not to believe the outcome.” -Pricing & Market Access Outlook, 2010-2011 Edition, IMS Consulting Group. © IMS Consulting Group 2011
