The Collaboration for Oncology Data in Europe (CODE)
is supporting the creation of a large-scale Oncology Data Network that will collate comprehensive, up-to-date data to describe how anti-cancer medicines are actually used in clinical practice. The technology platform has been designed to be able to aggregate data on anti-cancer medicine usage for all forms of cancer, in all patients and for all treatment centres across Europe who wish to join. For the first time, treatment centres joining the Oncology Data Network will be able to explore near real-time, clinically robust, real-world information that will describe how anti-cancer medicines are being used in today’s clinical practice, for which patients groups, and in which combinations and sequences, across Europe. The members of CODE believe that creating this Oncology Data Network will pave the way for the European oncology community to increase its understanding of today’s clinical practice. Only by understanding how anti-cancer medicines are used will we create the necessary foundation for new approaches to access of innovative therapies, helping to connect treatment innovation to patient benefit and broaden the opportunity for individual patients to receive the therapies that are appropriate for them.
