Why Real World Insights is important in healthcare

At its core, Real-World Insights or RWI (which is derived from Real-World Data or RWD) provides the unique opportunity to better understand patient outcomes. This moves healthcare from an industry where long-term decisions about medicines are made based on a set of randomised controlled trials (RCT’s) in a controlled environment before and around launch, to a world where decision making is supplemented with real world evidence captured from thousands or millions of treatment decisions and their impact on outcomes.
