Optimizing Rare Disease Outcomes Through eCOA Technology And Training

While there is no universal definition of a rare disease, a disease is defined as rare in the United States if it affects less than 200,000 people (620 patients per million).1,2 Today, there are nearly 7,000 known rare diseases affecting 30 million people in the U.S.3 While each disease affects a small patient population, as a category, rare diseases have a significant impact on patients, their families, and the healthcare system.

Rare diseases are devastating to children and families. 95% of rare diseases have no pharmacological treatment options, exacerbating the mis-diagnosis trajectory, and resulting in significant healthcare spend that does not improve patient outcomes.4 Many of these diseases are chronic, debilitating, or fatal. In the small number of cases where treatments exist, they are often complex, costly, and patients may wait years for a correct diagnosis.
