RWE 201 – THE END – A Landscape Analysis of Regional RWE Frameworks – The European Health Data Space and DARWIN-EU

In our real world evidence (RWE) 201 series we have been exploring the regional regulatory and data access frameworks that have been implemented to support access to clinical experience data (real world data | RWD), which is crucial if we are to use this RWD to generate RWE.
The European Union (EU) is making significant strides in advancing healthcare through a series of interconnected initiatives. The EU4Health Program aims to bolster health systems, focusing on crisis preparedness and disease prevention. The European Health Data Space is an effort to ensure secure access and exchange of health data across EU countries, enhancing healthcare quality and research. Complementing this, the Data Governance Act seeks to foster trust and facilitate data sharing for societal benefits. The European Medicines Agency (EMA)’s 2025 Vision for Real World Evidence (RWE) and the EMA RWE Framework to Support Regulatory Decision Making are pivotal in integrating real-world data (RWD) and RWE into regulatory processes, improving drug development and monitoring. The EU’s Action Plan for RWD & RWE further emphasizes the use of real-world healthcare data in policy and decision-making. Finally, the incorporation of RWD/RWE into the new EU Medicines Regulations marks a significant shift towards evidence-based, data-driven approaches in the pharmaceutical sector, aiming to enhance patient outcomes and healthcare efficiency across the EU.
