My Health Data Path
CPHIN joined other collaborators who came together to build this website in order to make the value of data easier to understand. Multiple groups of people – people living with health conditions, and people who aren’t, created this website with the aim of being useful for everyone, functional, easy to navigate, and informative.
Policy Modernization Group: CPHIN is a proud supporter of the Policy Modernization Group, a multi-stakeholder collaborative which envisions a healthcare system that is grounded in modern data policies across all therapeutic areas. The group is comprised of Pan_Canadian healthcare subject matter experts including patient advocates, data and privacy lawyers, researchers, ethicists, clinicians, government representatives, industry members, and consultants.
Real-World Evidence & Access in Canadian Healthcare (REACH) Program
Goal: To support Health Canada and CADTH in the development of a framework that will allow for the use of RWD/E in decision making throughout the lifecycle of a medication.
Background: Health Canada and CADTH are working to make better use of real-world evidence (RWE) to support regulatory and funding decisions across a product’s life cycle for both drugs and medical devices.
In collaboration with CPHIN, two 2-day sprints were held to design a new specialized pathway allowing for the collection of high quality RWE, upon which regulatory and reimbursement decisions can be made, where non-RCT data is critical.
Why is this Important?
- Allows bolstering of clinical trial data through insights from RWE
- Make regulatory and funding decisions, facilitating earlier access for patients
- Improved communication between organizations
- Successful launch of framework
- Establishment of ongoing relationships to co-create
- Creating an environment where patients can gain access to medications faster
