Real World Evidence in Alberta
Alberta has one of the largest, most mature, detailed and comprehensive health system data depositories in Canada. As such, Alberta is poised to become a global leader in RWE generation. To realize this potential, the Universities of Alberta and Calgary, along with the Institute of Health Economics, have led the formation of the Alberta RWE Consortium. Consortium membership also includes Alberta Innovates, Alberta Health, Alberta Economic Development and Trade, and Alberta Health Services.
Alberta has distinct health sector advantages that make the province attractive to health and life sciences-related activity, including:
- A single health authority and the largest fully integrated health system in Canada
- Strategic Clinical Networks to drive innovation across the health system
- Advanced and comprehensive health information systems and database assets
- World leading clinical, methodological and analytic expertise
