Real-World Evidence

Globally recognised Nordic register data

Real-World Evidence – Real insights – Real impact

Over the past decade, Real-World Evidence (RWE) has opened remarkable new opportunities in health economics and market access. Insights from RWE can provide real impact when the right questions are asked, and the right methods are used.

NHTA is authorised to access patient level data within all Danish registries through Statistics Denmark. This ensures that NHTA has direct access to Danish registries, which enables linkages of both health registries (e.g., administrative registries and clinical databases) with all other Danish registries.

Further, we have a strong network and strategic partnerships that ensure high-quality work on our RWD and RWE projects in the Nordic countries.

NHTA’s specialists can guide you through the complexity of working with RWE into seamless processes and outcomes that fit your needs and brings value to your project.

Who do we support?

Knowledge of how products are actually used in real-world settings can help stakeholders make important decisions and accelerate the market access process


The industry is frequently using RWE. From identifying unmet needs or describing patient groups to optimizing clinical trials and market access.


FDA/EMA/DMC benefit from post-market safety and benefit/risk studies. RWE is increasingly seen as a key factor for market approvals.


Patients- and patient organizations use and benefit from data openness and knowledge about their conditions.


The most efficient clinical decisions are leveraged based on evidence and knowledge about the treatment options and patients.


Knowledge of treatment patterns, costs and efficiency/value provides the basis for prioritization decisions.

National Hospital Medication Register/ Sygehusmedicinregistret (SMR)

Researchers and clinicians will soon have a much more detailed insight into how drugs are used in Danish hospitals.

This is possible as the National Hospital Medication Register/Sygehusmedicinregistret is now ready and available to researchers. NHTA has access to the data from May 2022.
