We provide the critical solutions for innovative drug developers to capture real world data opportunity

Real world data and real world evidence play an important role in developing effective new medications and evaluating patient health outcomes per treatment pathway. Often, this data is not readily available to drug developers. Additionally, the administrative burden needed to maintain the diversity in data is overwhelming for drug developers to resource at scale.

At BC Platforms we make things simple. We provide you rapid access to global real world data and technology, to conquer the challenges and capture the full solution opportunity.

Real World Data supports all stages of drug development process

Together with genomic data, RWD is increasingly used as a source of assurance for drugs to be accepted by decision makers and adopted in medical practice. RWD allows to get drugs more quickly to market and expand their usage in new indications faster.

  • Drug Discovery
    Identify novel targets in population or disease specific cohorts.
  • Clinical
    Speed decision making for the Clinical Development Plan or supplement your clinical trial data with RWD for an External Control Arm.
  • Regulatory Interactions
    Justify requests to the regulatory authorities with real world evidence from the targeted patient population.
  • Medical Affairs
    Demonstrate the patient journey, costs and unmet medical needs as part of the country by country approval and reimbursement submissions, including support for label expansion.

Fully capturing the RWD opportunity requires drug developers to overcome significant challenges and scale

Those wishing to unlock RWD's true value must have access to a variety of data sources/types, and the technological capabilities to use the data to uncover meaningful insights.
