SummaryThe collaboration leverages the Inovalon MORE2 Registry® payer-sourced dataset and Corrona’s platform of clinical registries to enable data-driven insights on the treatment of autoimmune diseases from both clinical and health economic perspectives.
Avalere, an Inovalon company specializing in healthcare research and strategic advisory services, has entered a collaboration with Corrona, a leader in real-world evidence generation in autoimmune diseases through its independent registry platform. Under the agreement, Avalere will utilize data from Inovalon’s large scale, real-world MORE2 Registry® dataset along with data elements from Corrona’s clinical registries. The MORE2 Registry® dataset contains primary source, de-identified, and longitudinally matched medical, pharmacy, and laboratory data on more than 319 million unique patients spanning 56 billion medical events and more than 1,000,000 physicians across Medicare, Medicaid, and commercially insured markets. Corrona collects deep clinical data on validated physician assessments used in pivotal phase 3 trials as well as disease-specific patient reported outcomes, yielding a comprehensive longitudinal dataset that stands apart from datasets derived from electronic medical records, claims, or patient surveys. Data collected from over 500 sites in the US, Canada, and Japan make Corrona the largest network of real-world investigators contributing prospective data for patients with autoimmune conditions. Combined, the datasets will offer a complete and highly differentiated picture of patients with autoimmune conditions, enabling the real-world and longitudinal assessment of the dynamics between patient demographics, clinical characteristics, functional status, patient-reported outcome measures, laboratory values, healthcare resource utilization, and economic outcomes.
The analytics will be conducted on a de-identified basis in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 as well as within the guidelines of Inovalon and Corrona individual client and data use agreements.
“Analytics using Avalere’s payer-sourced claims data along with Corrona’s rich clinical data offer a unique view into the value of therapies and services that treat and manage autoimmune diseases,” said John E. Linnehan, director of Avalere’s Healthcare Economics & Advanced Analytics practice. “This collaboration will allow for the generation of insights that can support the evaluation of treatment modalities for patients suffering from autoimmune conditions and lead to improvement in patient outcomes.”
“We are excited to work with Avalere in this important endeavor,” said Leslie Harrold, chief scientific officer of Corrona. “After a thorough review of potential collaborators, Avalere stood out because of the breadth and coverage of their dataset against that of Corrona. As a clinical researcher, I am excited about what the MORE2 Registry® adds to Corrona’s deep clinical data and patient reported outcomes. It will allow pharmaceutical companies and academic researchers to gain new insights that will ultimately improve the health and well-being of patients with autoimmune diseases.”
Corrona provides real-world evidence through syndicated registry data and analysis services, helping biopharmaceutical companies demonstrate the value of their products to clinicians, patients, payers, and regulators.
