Closing the Gap
The Value of Unstructured Data in the Breast Cancer Pathway

Growing need RWE

There's a growing need for Real-World Evidence (RWE) among patients dealing with advanced breast cancer. Real-world patients often differ from those in clinical trials due to factors like age, existing health conditions, previous treatments, and specific tumor characteristics, like hormone receptor status.

Over the last decade, there hasn't been notable improvement in the long-term outlook for patients with estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) advanced breast cancer. Research based on Real-World Data (RWD) can shed light on patient treatment preferences, uncovering the factors influencing decisions regarding life quality versus life duration during different disease stages.

Structured vs. Unstructured

Structured data alone only provides part of the picture, missing key nuances like receptor status. Combining structured data with rich EHR narrative data can improve our understanding of breast cancer pathophysiology, outcomes, and characteristics at diagnosis.

Real-World Insights into the Patient Journey

By leveraging unstructured data, we can obtain a more comprehensive and accurate view of the patient journey, enabling better decision-making and improved patient care.
