Greg Simon
Former President Biden Cancer Initiative; Acting President MediMergent LLC

General Session: Engaging Patients in Accelerating the Development of New Cancer Therapies

The 21st Century Cures Act defined the role of Real-World Evidence in the development and commercialization of drugs and biologics. It also highlighted the untapped value of the Voice-of-the-Patient as a pivotal source of real-world data. Engaging the patient is especially important in the development of new therapeutic approaches and products for treatment of cancer. Solutions relating to successful cancer treatment must combine scientific/clinical advances and inclusion of the patient as an active participant in his/her own healthcare journey. New platforms are evolving that focus on prospectively capturing patients? knowledge of their disease, compliance to treatments, and role in shared decision making. The patient's "Voice" is now as important as his/her "Genetic Profile". SPEAKER: Greg Simon, Former President, Biden Cancer Initiative; Acting President, MediMergent LLC
