Whether inside brick and mortar care or in a virtual clinical trial, our thinking about patients and their data is evolving.

Finally, how do we make the patient experience of consent for data use consistent and clear over time?

The 21st Century Cures Act defined the role of Real-World Evidence in the development and commercialization of drugs and biologics. It also highlighted the untapped value of the Voice-of-the-Patient as a pivotal source of real-world data. Engaging the patient is especially important in the development of new therapeutic approaches and products for treatment of cancer. Solutions relating to successful cancer treatment must combine scientific/clinical advances and inclusion of the patient as an active participant in his/her own healthcare journey. New platforms are evolving that focus on prospectively capturing patients’ knowledge of their disease, compliance to treatments, and role in shared decision making. The patient’s “Voice” is now as important as his/her “Genetic Profile”.
