Real World Evidence

Recent years have seen the proliferation of Real World Evidence (RWE), both in availability and importance. As early pioneers in this space, Ipsos has been running the syndicated Global Therapy Monitors (the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of syndicated prescribing data) for over 25 years. Our RWE portfolio also includes other specialist syndicated services, and analysis and strategic consulting from our Global Evidence, Value & Access experts.

Client context

'Real World Evidence' enables manufacturers to document the overall, longer-term value of their treatments – not just their safety & efficacy. RWE has applications throughout the product lifecycle and our clients use it in pre-launch, launch and post-launch to demonstrate the value and pricing of their drugs, assess patient and clinical pathways, identify sales opportunities and unmet needs, and more.

Case studies

Given the ongoing introduction of ‘biosimilars’, it is critical to understand how these products will impact current treatment practices – both for originators of branded products and those developing biosimilar options. Ipsos Healthcare’s syndicated Autoimmune Biosimilar Impact Study delivers a comprehensive, future-focused solution to this common need. It combines perceptual research among doctors and payers with robust patient-level data from Ipsos’ Global Therapy Monitors. By applying advanced analytics to this data, it delivers future market maps of the AI biosimilar landscape. Subscribers (from both the pharmaceutical manufacturing and biotech sides) have been able understand the rate of uptake of biosimilars, likely patient populations, characteristics that will drive biosimilar use, and much more.
For this study, Ipsos was shortlisted for a BHBIA BOBI Award in the ‘Most innovative’ category (2015).
