QuintilesIMS Institute Report Identifies Nine Evidence-based Approaches to Transform Drug Development and Commercialization:
The report—Connecting Insights: Bringing Better Outcomes from Pipeline to Patient Using Data and Analytics—highlights nine evidence-based approaches:
Improving study design by better linking indications and target endpoints. In every randomized controlled trial (RCT), therapeutic agents must be tested against defined potential indications. Often, a clinical study will succeed or fail based on the primary outcome endpoints that are chosen. Real-world insights, shared data and large data sets that supplement RCTs can help identify precise and useful primary outcome endpoints. They also can enable more rapid validation and acceptance of surrogate endpoints. Improving patient targeting through better inclusion/exclusion criteria and biomarker-based segmentation approaches. Biomarkers are a measurable indicator of a biological state or condition. Historically, biomarker identification has been conducted during pre-clinical research on a small scale. The advent of gene expression profiling, genetic analysis and genomic profiling now enable target and biomarker discovery to be applied beyond pre-clinical research to clinical studies and practice. Optimizing site identification and improving site efficiency. Maximizing the value of a clinical asset largely depends on smart program and trial designs. Where clinical trials are located is critically important—requiring consideration of many site-selection measures. Applying new data types and innovative analytics can increase patient-per-site enrollment while minimizing protocol amendments. Executing clinical studies more efficiently via risk-based monitoring. Clinical trial site monitoring accounts for an estimated 21 percent of the total cost of clinical trials, making it the single highest cost factor for drug development. Risk-based monitoring (RBM) is an effective way for identifying site-related risks before they create issues and unnecessary costs. These approaches require large amounts of longitudinal data covering sites, study types and indications. Using big data modelling tools, risk patterns can be identified and mitigation strategies developed—particularly for known failure points that follow study start-up. Improving standards of care and outcomes analysis to determine optimal care paths. Applying rigorous analysis to real-world treatment patterns, resource utilization and patient outcomes can yield actionable insights for healthcare stakeholders. Electronic medical records combined with registries, claims data and other sources of evidence can complement clinical research and drive innovative patient care solutions. Lifting levels of patient adherence in medication use. The economic consequences of patient non adherence are estimated to account for 4.6 percent of global total health expenditure, representing the majority of the world’s total avoidable costs linked to sub optimal medicine use. The movement toward outcomes-based contracting, the shift of risk from payer to provider and the greater use of value-based insurance design are all contributing to a greater focus by stakeholders on this issue. Advances in technology and data analytics are enabling new approaches that: recognize the diversity of underlying drivers of patient non adherence; apply predictive analytics to stratify patients based on risk and consequences of non adherence; using a broader range of interventions including low-cost smartphone-based apps; and integrate adherence measures into patient records. Reaching physicians and patients with appropriate medicines. Linking real-world data with analytics is generating new insights to better understand patient habits, health journeys and engagement with healthcare professionals, as well as to measure patient outcomes. This also helps identify physicians likely to have patients who can benefit from new medicines so that manufacturers can efficiently provide relevant educational information to those prescribers. Evaluating medical value and real-world evidence in decision-making. A proliferation of frameworks and assessment approaches now exist in response to increased calls for new medicines to demonstrate “evidence of value” to patients and health systems. These new approaches increasingly draw on information and analysis that go beyond traditional RCT data and include electronic medical records, claims data, mortality data, consumer data, registries, data collected in observational studies and chart reviews. Applying post-market data to drive portfolio planning and predict market dynamics. The biopharmaceutical industry increasingly is focused on niche segments such as rare diseases and patient sub-populations. The relative scarcity of precise data within these sectors presents challenges when making commercial decisions during asset development and deployment. Companies are addressing these challenges by leveraging real-world insights to measure patient populations in complex settings and using advanced analytics to bridge gaps in data availability.Transform Clinical Development QuintilesIMS has highly specialized expertise to manage increasing complexity Transform Healthcare with Real-World Insights Innovate with Technology Quintiles IMS to Become Industry-Leading Information and Technology-Enabled Healthcare Service Provider DANBURY, CT and RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, May 3, 2016 – IMS Health Holdings, Inc.
