VJVirtual | ALZ-NET: examining novel approved treatments in the real-world

Rebecca Edelmayer, PhD, Alzheimer’s Association, introduces the recently established Alzheimer’s Network for Treatment and Diagnostics (ALZ-NET) initiative. ALZ-NET was launched by the Alzheimer’s Association as a way to gather data on the real-world use of novel FDA-approved Alzheimer’s disease treatments, to inform future research and improve patient care. The network will collect longitudinal diagnostic and therapeutic data, to offer better insights into the long-term health outcomes for patients receiving these therapies. Real-world data also encompasses a much more diverse population than that of clinical trials. ALZ-NET seeks to foster continuous learning, providing information to health care providers on how to improve diagnosis and care, as well as advancing the science behind future Alzheimer’s disease treatments.
