Real World Data (RWD)

Data relating to patient health status and/or the delivery of health care routinely collected from a variety of sources. RWD can come from a number of sources, for example: electronic health records; insurance claims and billing activities; product and disease registries; patient-generated data including in home-use settings; and data gathered from other sources that can inform on health status, such as mobile devices.
