Just over a week to go until the Irish Healthcare Awards @HealthAwardsIrl OpenApps' projects in collaboration with the HSE are in the running for "Best Use of Information Technology" & "Public Health Initiative of the Year" 🤞https://www.openapp.ie/openapp-projects-in-collaboration-with-the-hse-shortlisted-for-irish-health-awards-2022/ #IMTIHA22

Very interesting comments by the FDA RWE panel today at #NORDSummit regarding the pros and cons of using #registry data vs. other sources of data for RWE studies. Registry data can be much higher in quality and accuracy but, at times, less efficient.

Thank you to all of our speakers, attendees, and staff for a great first day of the #NORDSummit! We look forward to learning, networking, and discussing important #RareDisease topics together again tomorrow.

"Partnerships with patients and patient advocacy groups increase #DrugDevelopment success."
