Downstream Innovation: Designing infrastructures and environments for real-world disease-focused learning

Tuesday, November 3, 2020

The LEAPS Project is advancing sustainable, patient-centered biomedical innovation through a new collaborative systems approach to the planning, production, and use of real-world evidence at the level of disease, not just a therapy. This two-part research brief series introduces the concept of “Downstream Innovation” as a critical enabler of such disease-ecosystem innovation. Part I outlines the concept of Downstream Innovation and describes strategic perspectives, and Part II applies the framework and principles to rheumatoid arthritis.
