Innovation and solutions in evidence science
Based on a systems model for real world evidence generation, GoodScience is promulgating methods for optimizing the integrity and value of information in the research process. Research with observational data (without formal experimental design and randomization) is conceived as the accurate and efficient transmission of information through a channel of communication (see the epistemologic model below). By identifying the numerous sources of entropy (information loss or distortion) in the health research process and applying the best solution set we can create a more efficient, reliable and productive evidence generation system. This has very pragmatic implications for optimizing cost efficiency and value generation for any evidence generation endeavor; and ultimately, for outcomes for patients.
