The “CARE” (Clinical Analytics for Real-World Evidence) Platform

The healthcare industry is shifting from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) care to real world data (RWD) to understand how well an intervention performs in clinical practice. The best source of RWD is source data – that is, data that are collected at the interface of the patient and the health care system. The University of Waterloo in partnership with Roche Canada, are therefore proposing to develop the “CARE” (Clinical Analytics for Real-World Evidence) platform, a holistic cloud-based data analytic solution capable of consolidating clinical data obtained from disparate data systems . This project begins the initial steps to address relevant clinical research objectives by providing the tool and infrastructure required to process and analyze the enormous amount of scattered data within an institution and across multiple institutions.
