Investing in ways to address social risk factors and health disparities related to treatments for burdensome conditions has become a critical component of advancing health equity in the US healthcare system. The foundation of understanding these treatment outcome inequities and of closing healthcare gaps is real-world evidence (RWE) generation and health economics and outcomes research (HEOR). This webinar will focus on how integrating social determinants of health (SDOH) data with claims-based research can provide an opportunity to improve treatment access and outcomes for under-represented populations through targeted research and strategic efforts. A case study will outline the data privacy and linking considerations that must be navigated, as well as highlight the types of insights gleaned from these analyses. An interactive discussion between the presenters will provide an opportunity to discuss how this evidence may be utilized by different stakeholders to inform provider practice and performance measurement, improve clinical trial diversity and recruitment, drive market access strategy, and assess treatment coverage and reimbursement utilizing RWE.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the importance of integrating SDOH data into real-world evidence generation strategies.
  • Learn about the data security and privacy considerations that are necessary to navigate to conduct this SDOH and claims data-linked research in a safe, ethical, and HIPAA-compliant manner.
  • Understand the benefits and limitations of linked SDOH-claims-based studies in the context of broader evidence-generation needs.
  • Identify use cases for application of this type of RWE by different stakeholders in the healthcare system.
