Webinar: Biostatistics & Bioinformatics Seminar – ‘Real real-world evidence’

November 2, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Presented by: Dr. David Madigan, PhD, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Northeastern University
About the presentation: In practice, learning healthcare systems rely primarily on observational studies generating one effect estimate at a time using customized study designs with unknown operating characteristics and publishing – or not – one estimate at a time. Instead, we propose a standardized process for performing observational research that can be evaluated, calibrated, and applied at scale to generate a more reliable and complete evidence base than previously possible, fostering a truly learning healthcare system. We demonstrate this process in the contexts of hypertension and depression.
