Publication Digest: Real-world data: a comprehensive literature review on the barriers, challenges, and opportunities associated with their inclusion in the health technology assessment process

MTRC shares the most relevant and impactful publications in the field of market access and HEOR for medical technologies in Europe through its Publications Digest. In a recent publication, Zisis et al. conducted a systematic literature review to assess the current use and acceptance of real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE) in health technology assessment (HTA) processes. The authors aimed to discern stakeholders' viewpoints on RWD and RWE, highlighting obstacles, difficulties, prospects, and consequences associated with their incorporation into HTA. The review emphasized the importance of recognizing regional nuances, addressing methodological challenges, and promoting collaboration for leveraging RWD and RWE effectively in healthcare decision-making.
