From Real-World Data to Real-World Intelligence

Duration: 1 hour

​According to the HHS, drug overdoses and opioid-involved deaths continue to increase in the U.S. at alarming rates. Data, surrounding the epidemic, floods in from a number of varied sources, but few are able to convert the data into actionable insights.

​The good news is that this explosion of health data actually presents an opportunity to turn back the tide of opioid addiction. By transitioning real-world data into real world insight via powerful analytics, organizations can shepherd more people wrestling with opioid addiction into critical programs impacting positive patient outcomes.

In this webinar, presented by SAS and BioPharma Dive Brand Studio, you will learn:

  • How to overcome the challenges presented by the increasing volume of available data
  • How the power of advanced analytics is helping solve societal challenges
  • How to extract intelligence from real-world data and reduce the time it takes to yield actionable insights
