The assessment, published on 27 November, provides a list of needs around the know-how, technical requirements and legal certainty needed to handle real-world data on patients and medical services.

The study details how data can be used to boost research into medicines, better monitor health across the population and personalise treatments for patients. The authors of the assessment said their recommendations were aimed at policymakers and regulators involved in supervising health and science.
