Evolution or Revolution? Translating PGHD into Measures that Matter

Evolution or Revolution? Translating PGHD into Measures that Matter

October 2021

Traditional industry approaches to product development can be evolved using person-generated health data (PGHD) to tailor therapeutic options based on how individuals feel and function in everyday life.

In a wide ranging conversation spanning insights from the FDA, industry trends and missed opportunities, industry experts and the team from Evidation discussed how PGHD can revolutionize evidence generation from pre-clinical development to post-market surveillance. During this recent webinar, panelists also discussed how to develop the right measures and value frameworks that capture meaningful changes to patients, and shared insights into how organizations can design, implement and manage a PGHD strategy.

RESEARCH: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) despite continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) use, and is associated with a range of cardiometabolic, psychiatric, and other comorbidities. Evidation characterized the health related burden of illness associated with  EDS and OSA in a recent study. READ HERE.

Evidation conducted a real-world study assessing the relationship between positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment, excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), and patient satisfaction in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Overall, strategies to improve patient satisfaction with OSA care should focus on PAP adherence and monitoring and resolving residual EDS. READ HERE.
