Workshop Series Background, Sequence, and Focus

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (National Academies) is convening a three-part workshop series, sponsored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, examining how real-world evidence development and uptake can enhance medical product development and evaluation. The workshops will advance discussions and common knowledge about complex issues relating to the generation and utilization of real-world evidence, including fostering development and implementation of the science and technology of real-world evidence generation and utilization.

  • Workshop One (September 1920, 2017) focused on how to align incentives to support collection and use of real-world evidence in health product review, payment, and delivery. Incentives need to address barriers impeding the uptake of real-world evidence, including barriers to transparency. 
  • Workshop Two (March 67, 2018) will be a “town-hall” style meeting with in-depth audience discussion and active participation that will illuminate what types of data are appropriate for what specific purposes and suggest practical approaches for data collection and evidence use by developing and working through example use cases. 
  • Workshop Three (July 1718, 2018) will examine and suggest approaches for operationalizing the collection and use of real-world evidence.
