Carelon Research was founded in 1996 on the need for better evidence in healthcare decision making. Long before real-world evidence was part of the healthcare vernacular, we worked tirelessly to educate the healthcare industry – providers, payers, life sciences companies, regulators, and even patients, of the need to support the development, use, and application of the evidence generated from real-world research.
Now the understanding of the need for real-world evidence within the scientific and medical community is firmly rooted. The collaborative nature of our relationships and our work with other organizations interested in solving these evidentiary challenges has allowed us to break down silos that exist within our US healthcare delivery system and accomplish a great deal of work. We’ve reached across tables and stakeholder lines to help inform and improve policies, programs, guidelines, best practices, and more for decision makers and patients.
Today we have nearly three decades of experience supporting this need with a powerful ecosystem of expertise, data, and relationships. Our ability to measure and help improve the safety, effectiveness, and affordability of medical technologies is critical to solving healthcare’s most complex challenges.
