By: Alan S. Louie, Ph.D.Research Director, Life Sciences


This IDC Perspective provides analyst insights on Roche's $1.9 billion acquisition of Flatiron Health. It also highlights Flatiron's efforts to develop a high-quality patient RWE resource and platform to help researchers, investigators, and clinicians to better leverage data to accelerate new drug research, streamline clinical trials, and improve patient outcomes.

"The effective use of new data available to life science companies promises to accelerate time to insights and time to market, which concurrently are improving operational excellence and reducing costs. High-quality RWE data will play a significant role in delivering on this promise with the Flatiron Health approach paving the way toward more mainstream use of this data," said Alan S.
