Technology has expedited the process of data collection, and in particular, the life sciences industry has witnessed an unanticipated growth of available data sets. This proliferation presented both a challenge and an opportunity for Knowledgent, a New Jersey-based company catering to data and analytics innovation in the life sciences industry. Maximizing the potential of available data for more than half a decade, the company has been providing end-to-end data and analytics solutions to the top companies in the space.

RWE is primarily comprised of Medical Claims, Lab Results, and Electronic Medical Records. The firm helps Life Sciences companies perform advanced analytics, including cohort and predictive analytics on RWE data sources to understand the performance of their drugs and devices when used by non-clinical trial patients.
Recently, Knowledgent helped a major pharmaceutical company perform treatment pathway analysis for a particular disease using RWE. By using Sankey diagrams to cluster the patients into different pathways, the Knowledgent team was able to correlate patient outcomes, such as hospitalization rates and medical costs, with the identified treatment pathways. Shail Jain, Chief Executive Partner of Knowledgent, emphasizing on the company's mission, says, "The ultimate goal of our services is to provide valuable information that drives innovation and decisions for the business." The key differentiator for Knowledgent's clients is that they are under the guidance of a team of Informationists that are both industry and technology experts with demonstrated capabilities in data architecture and engineering, data analysis, and domain knowledge.
