Warren, NJ — December 6, 2016 — Knowledgent, the data and analytics firm, announced today their membership in the SAS Partner Program, with an initial focus area being in real world evidence that is enabled by SAS Life Sciences infrastructure.
Life Sciences organizations are looking to more effectively transform their real world evidence capability via improved access and integration of internal data with external data (from 3rd parties and partners). However, they struggle with the slow pace of data acquisition, are challenged with data standardization and integration, and lack advanced analytics. The current infrastructure, data platforms, and tools fall short of the agility necessary to perform cross-study analytics, to deliver robust exploratory analytic capabilities that lead to faster therapeutic insights.
Knowledgent and SAS will provide clients with world class services and analytics tools that are rapidly applied to use cases within life sciences. It is valuable to groups within companies that pull together evidence in terms of a brand strategy, including RWE or RWD (real world evidence or data), HEOR (health economics & outcome research) or epidemiology-type groups, commercial pharma groups such as market access.
SAS technologies that support real world evidence create an environment where business and technical users alike can rapidly extract data subsets and perform exploratory predictive analytics in a high-performance environment.
“Organizations are turning to services companies who can combine with high end computing technology as a way to quickly stand-up their next generation data management and analytics platform, often with a lower associated cost,” said Shail Jain, Chief Executive Partner, Knowledgent. “They need to acquire and manage study data from internal systems, CROs, 3rd parties, and partners. These disparate data sets need to be assessed, standardized, assembled, and integrated into submission models, and applied to a cohort builder that is easily accessible for visualization and iterative analytics.”
“SAS delivers both an entry point and a sustainable set of analytics solutions for pharma,” said Dan Cain, Vice President Healthcare and Life Sciences, SAS. “Working with Knowledgent enables efficient transformation, analysis, exploration, and reporting of RWE data, and faster development of new therapies by giving everyone access to powerful pharma analytics.”
The benefits include:
- Rapid support of exploratory analysis across large-scale, real world data to support advanced analytic use cases, and delivers insights to refine safety signals by identifying risk factors, time to onset, and recurrence of adverse events.
- Improves speed-to-market for realizing a variety of clinical use cases by leveraging prebuilt and pre-assembled components with scalable analytic platform
