  • While clinical trials play a vital role in the development and evaluation of new pharmaceuticals and vaccines, they often fail to capture the complete range of real-world outcomes and impacts of these interventions. Once a new intervention receives regulatory approval, it is prescribed to a diverse patient population with varying ages, medical histories, and concurrent medications, extending beyond the scope of the clinical trial participants. As a result, the true clinical and cost effectiveness of the intervention in real-world settings requires additional investigation. Additionally, manufacturers are obligated to monitor the post-marketing safety of their products. Real-world data (RWD), real-world evidence (RWE), and health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) play a critical role in the lifecycle of pharmaceuticals and vaccines, by bridging the gap between controlled clinical trials and real-world practice.
