IQVIA Real-World Insights (RWI) teams work with clients worldwide to help them use complex, clinically rich, patient-level healthcare datasets to answer their specific research questions, make more informed decisions, and deliver results. We are collaborative, intellectually curious, entrepreneurial, and constantly looking for opportunities to harness the value of Real-World Evidence (RWE) in a constantly evolving industry.

The RWI Enriched Studies Development Team is responsible for advancing the IQVIA capabilities to deliver Enriched Studies through targeted internal investment activities, client business development and oversight for study delivery. Enriched Studies integrate two methods of data collection (primary and secondary) to build a comprehensive patient record and increase both the availability and depth of researchable data. Enriched Studies are innovative in their use of secondary data (e.g. electronic medical records, health claims) and provide a number of benefits to our clients. Enriched Studies are typically deployed as a method for delivering observational studies, although are also being explored for delivering clinical trials as well. The content area of the team encompasses a broad range of activities related to Enriched Studies:
Geographic data source and technical assessments to support capability expansion.
