On September 19–20, 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held the first workshop of a three-part series titled Examining the Impact of Real-World Evidence on Medical Product Development. The workshops are intended to advance discussions and common knowledge among key stakeholders about complex issues relating to the generation and use of real-world evidence (RWE). The first workshop focused on how to align incentives to support the collection and use of RWE in health product review, payment, and delivery and how to address the barriers that impede the uptake and application of RWE. This publication briefly summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

On March 6–7, 2018, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held the second workshop of a three-part series titled Examining the Impact of Real-World Evidence on Medical Product Development. The workshops are intended to advance discussions and common knowledge among key stakeholders about complex issues relating to the generation and use of real-world evidence (RWE). The second workshop focused on practical approaches for the collection of real-world data (RWD)—data generated outside of the traditional clinical trial setting—and the use of RWE. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from this second workshop.
