There is no doubt that the use of clinical data is having an expanding and profound impact on healthcare. To understand how facilities are using their clinical data in areas like clinical research and health equity, Q-Centrix administered a survey to professionals holding managerial, executive, or other leadership roles at hospitals and health systems throughout the United States.
A few highlights from the survey:
- Most facilities are aware of the value real world data offer in research. At more than half of facilities (56 percent), using real world data in clinical research is a high priority.
- Just over half of respondents (53 percent) said their facility is actively using real world data to support clinical research, while about a third (32 percent) said their facility is actively sharing real world data to support clinical research.
- A majority of respondents (59 percent) felt patients would be very or somewhat comfortable with the idea of their de-identified data being shared for the purpose of clinical research. Nearly as many (55 percent) felt patients would be comfortable with their de-identified data being shared for the purpose of health equity.
