39: Real World Data. Real Life Results.

February 22, 2021


The use of data is rapidly shaping and transforming every aspect of how we measure, track, research, and deliver healthcare. Using large data sets, innovators have been unleashing technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, and sentiment analysis to open entirely new avenues to understand health conditions, the circumstances in which they arise, and personalized approaches to addressing them. Cancer care is one area where the use of data is rapidly transforming every facet of care, and one rapidly evolving development is the use of real world data to provide important insights that often have not been answered using data from the highly prized clinical trials data. One very specific area that data—particularly real world data—is helping us to understand is how race and ethnicity play a role in disparities in care and outcomes. In this episode, we go deep into the data weeds with clinician, innovator, and data specialist Kathleen Maignan, AGPCNP-BC, MSN, OCN, to reveal what stories the data really has to tell.
