Increase Depth of Insights for Biomarker and Genomic Subpopulations

IMS Health works in partnership with Foundation Medicine® to increase depth of insights for biomarker and genomic subpopulations. We provide multiple Real-World Data (RWD) sources relevant for oncology, including:

  • Claims (medical and pharmacy)
    • Patient demographics
    • Prescriptions
    • Cost utilization
  • Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
    • Diagnoses/visits/labs/drugs
    • Clinical attributes such as tumor type, stage, histology/morphology

FoundationCORETM comprehensive genomic knowledge base provides:

  • Tumor mutation & biomarker status for 300+ genes in solid tumors, 415+ genes in hematological malignancies
    • At the biomarker level (e.g., EGFR)
    • At the genomic alteration level (e.g., EGFR T790M mutation)

Richer Oncology Insights with Pygargus

With increased demand for outcomes data to guide clinical practice, data extraction from EMRs is still a widely unexploited resource for epidemiological and clinical research based on unselected Real-World Data.

With our unique software Pygargus CXP, we can identify, extract and analyze large amounts of longitudinal data from electronic medical records and support our customers with well-performed analyses of the Real-World Data we capture.

  • Extract EMR data—Identify, extract and structure large amounts of longitudinal data from EMRs in Scandinavia
  • Customize and Link—Link data to various registers at the patient level:
      1. Breast Cancer Registry
      2. Melanoma Cancer Registry
