Real-world evidence has been increasingly recognized as an important complement to clinical research. In clinical research, randomized controlled trials often have stringent inclusion criteria which may exclude certain patient groups, such as those with comorbidities. When clinical trial populations diverge from patient populations seen in a real-world care setting, insights gained might not be widely applicable to all people. Analyzing real-world data, such as clinical information recorded in electronic health records (EHR) as part of routine clinical care, can provide insights that are generalizable to real-world populations.
