The objective of this OHE Consulting Report was to understand and develop a view on the core principles that should govern how Real-World Data (RWD) is accessed or generated, and used credibly to produce or generate Real-World Evidence (RWE), thereby working toward a set of "international standards". In this report, we firstly outline models of data governance in eight key markets - the UK, France, Italy, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia and the U.S. With the insights generated from these case studies, we then develop an illustrative framework of a top-performing governance model. By defining this model, we provide recommendations of what constitutes a good governance framework, which will support the favourable environment for the creation of RWE.
