CorEvitas, LLC and Inovalon Highlight Data Linkage Efficiencies at ISPOR

Panelists explore how connecting claims and clinical registry data lead to a better understanding of the patient journey

WALTHAM, Mass. and BOWIE, Md.– May 12, 2022 – CorEvitas, LLC, the built-for-purpose provider of real-world evidence, and Inovalon, a leading provider of cloud-based platforms empowering data-driven healthcare, announce a joint educational symposium at the International Society for Pharmacoeconomic and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) annual meeting, being held in Washington, DC, from May 15-18, 2022.

The symposium, “Digging Deeper–Uncovering Expanded Patient Insights through Linked Data,” will take place on May 16 and offer innovative methodologies to link applicable claims data with patient registry data as well as explore the benefits of leveraging multiple linked data sources. Panelists will describe the attributes of both data sources and offer specific examples of how novel insights have been derived from the unique combination of claims and patient registry data.

“We are linking best in class real-world data sets so biopharmaceutical organizations can better understand patients and physicians can optimize care of their patients,” shared Heather von Allmen, Senior Director at CorEvitas and symposium panelist. “Combining claims data with patient registry data presents the patient’s lived experience, from medication adherence and hospital visits to pharmacy refills and socioeconomic factors.”

Claims data are widely used in health economics and outcomes research to better understand topics such as medication adherence and healthcare resource utilization. However, these data are limited, typically only including patient demographics, diagnoses, procedures, and pharmacy script data. CorEvitas’ patient registry data capture clinical measures from both physicians and patients, including patient reported outcomes. By linking administrative claims data with clinical registry data, additional dimension is gained on both the patient journey and treatment experience.

“Stakeholders across the healthcare ecosystem, including biopharmaceutical organizations, payers, and physicians are looking for a consolidated view of clinical measures, patient adherence, laboratory values, and economic outcomes to better understand the patient journey,” said Scott Robinson, VP of Health Economics and Outcomes Research, a member of the Inovalon Insights team, and symposium panelist. “At ISPOR, we are excited to share use cases that demonstrate the benefits of combining applicable data sets and offer attendees practical strategies for gleaning new patient insights.”
