An Explosion of COVID-19 Data
Vast amounts of clinical data are captured at the point of care. This real-world data (RWD) is a treasure trove from which researchers and clinicians can better understand the characteristics of the novel coronavirus and develop therapies, clinical guidance, and containment strategies. Unfortunately, much of COVID-19 RWD remains untapped. But this is soon to change as industry leaders leap forward with deep talent and advanced data and technology solutions aimed at quickly getting meaningful data into the hands of researchers and analysts.
