This conference considered how a multi-stakeholder EU Learning Network could be established to foster learnings from the use of real-world evidence within the context of the European Health Data Space in order to inform deliberations between payers/HTA authorities and enable a learning system to bring the right treatment, for the right patient, at the right time.
The COVID-19 pandemic shows that real-world evidence generation has become even more crucial as data collected in medical practice would not only inform health systems and their resources, but also inform the development of medicines for the benefit of patients. The EU’s data strategy and proposed creation of a European Health Data Space offer the opportunity to harness the potential of real-world data through cross border collaboration with a view to enabling sustainable and early patient access to innovative technologies. This approach is also particularly relevant in view of the EU’s commitment to the Beating Cancer Plan.
