Dr Matthew Arnold, Director of Real World Science
Real World Data Science at AstraZeneca
Real World Data and Real World Evidence has been part of medical, clinical, commercial activities for many years. I’ll give an overview of my experience as a Real World Data Scientist at AstraZeneca and some examples of the tools, data, and methods that we use. I’ll talk about some of the challenges of using routinely-collected electronic health record data for generating real world evidence and give an example of an interesting study trying to understand disease progression in chronic kidney disease patients.
