Real-World Healthcare Navigator
The Real-World Healthcare Navigator (RWHN) aims to change how research is translated into clinical practice by establishing a sustainable service that leads the way in fully reproducing health studies.
Billions of dollars are spent in healthcare research annually and yet healthcare decisions are routinely informed by the findings of a single point-in-time study with minimal alignment to how those findings relate to what happens across different populations. There is no systematic method to move from the single study model to productionized reliable evidence at scale.
Observational health research needs an overhaul. Clinical practice is heterogeneous, varying heavily across geography and social environments, and due to the absence of a sustainable model, a lack of appropriate data and methods to rigorously calibrate results across multiple studies have hindered the development of a standardized procedure to evaluate the quality of clinical evidence generated.
The Real World Healthcare Navigator (RWHN) Impact Engine aims to shift healthcare research from the single anecdote to contextualized, robust, and reliable scientific evidence. Through this Impact Engine, Northeastern will have the power to change how research is translated into clinical practice by establishing a sustainable service that leads the way in fully reproducing health studies.
The Real-World Healthcare Navigator will become an independent referee of scientific excellence
The Reproducibility Service will be a flagship offering of the OHDSI Center and has the potential to take the evidence generated from observational research to a whole new level.
The RWHN will disseminate high quality science generalizable to diverse patient populations to a range of stakeholders impacting millions of lives.
