GRACE (Good Research for Comparative Effectiveness) Initiative

Quintiles led the development of the GRACE checklist. This checklist, based on the GRACE Principles, is designed to guide the assessment of observational studies of comparative effectiveness in terms of their quality and usefulness for decision-making. The GRACE checklist has been formally acknowledged by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and as a standard for required reporting by the Journal of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy.

Your stakeholders, including regulators, payers, patients and providers, are looking beyond market approval; they want to see that your product can deliver proven, tangible value. Through observational research in real-world settings, you gather the real world evidence needed to develop a robust story of safety, effectiveness and quality to clearly detail your product’s performance, including how it’s helping those who need it most.
