This workshop will explore key considerations for using real-world data (RWD) to generate real-world evidence (RWE) to help support in vitro diagnostic (IVD) products available under FDA’s emergency use authorization (EUA) to advance to full marketing status. A roadmap for diagnostic evaluations during emergencies would help enable stakeholders to have templates to use to expedite evaluation of laboratory-based tests and point of care technologies. By convening a broad range of government and industry stakeholders, the goal of the workshop is:
To identify challenges and next steps to the use of RWD/RWE to help support the advancement of EUA IVD products to full marketing status.
The projected outcomes of the workshop include:
- Identify test case(s) of interest to stakeholders
- Discussion to inform development of a roadmap for diagnostic evaluations during emergencies, to include what elements to collect (and how)
- Identify potential projects or next steps for the test case(s) of interest
