Accelerate Discovery with Platforms Built for Real-World Data

In a highly regulated, high demand market, you need end-to-end evidence of product efficacy and value. You need connections to patients, providers, and data. Now.

The good news is that InterSystems makes it possible.

Comprehensive Real-World Data in Real-Time

Data is at the center of all life sciences. And whether you are setting up trials for your next blockbuster drug, finding patients with a rare disease, comparing the effectiveness of competing therapeutics, or creating an observational registry, you need ready access to comprehensive, curated, real-world data.

No one has more experience with health information and interoperability than InterSystems. We know that real world data is dispersed, heterogeneous, and discontinuous. We know patients can move in or out of a cohort with a single health event.

Claims data is stale, lacking in clinical details and applicable only to an insured population. But when combined with EHR and other data types, it can become a rich, source of longitudinal data insight far exceeding the scope and scale of manual data capture.

Working with EHR data isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. And InterSystems understands.

Leveraging Normalized Real-World Patient Data to Streamline Clinical Trials, Reduce Delays and Costs.
Access to real-world clinical data is essential to improving trial recruitment, clinical operations, and post-marketing surveillance. Yet few companies have mastered its access and use. That’s why leading pharmaceutical companies, consultants, contract research organizations, medical centers, and hospitals turn to InterSystems. You can read three such examples below.
Real-time Health Information Transfer
Powered by InterSystems HealthShare and InterSystems IRIS for Health, poolprax has created an electronic patient record to streamline the treatment and care for patients with diabetes. The electronic transfer of data lets patients upload and access their blood glucose readings at any time, from anywhere. This also enables clinicians to access these measurements in real time to make informed decisions for better patient outcomes.
