This session will provide an overview of tokenization methodology and principles to aggregate real-world data and clinical trial data. We will also present findings where real-world data might be useful for patient characterization with preliminary data, describe the data sources used, outline the technologies leveraged, and conclude with lessons learned.

Learning Objectives

Describe data tokenization and the application in clinical trials; Recognize the scenarios under which real-world data might be useful for patient characterization; Identify data sources that could be integrated and perform analyze to generate patient insights and how they might be integrated into clinical trials.
