It is important for pharmaceutical companies in the Precision Medicine space not to underestimate the level of complexity involved in the companion diagnostic aspect to asset performance in the market once approval is received. Clinical application of companion diagnostic dependent therapeutics is riddled with challenges1. To forget about the companion diagnostic strategy required to deliver these therapeutics to the right patients, means these companies are risking missing up to 50% of the patient population whose lives they are seeking to improve2 with their innovations.
Diaceutics launched DXRX-The Diagnostic Network®3 to solve the broken diagnostic ecosystem by addressing the core problem in diagnostic care, its fragmentation, by integrating the key stakeholders involved in diagnostic care in a secure digital platform holding the largest repository of testing data. DXRX enables access to 365+ million de-identified patient records in 53 countries.
The DXRX platform’s data coverage contains:
- 4.7 years’ longitudinal history
- 12,717 labs showing disease volumes
- 493 labs providing results data
- 9,500 payors globally
- Data available from 2011
- Combined coverage from academic, community & reference labs
DXRX contains additional features for the US market:
- Weekly data feeds with 2-day lag
- 64% coverage of patients
- 670,000 referring physicians
- 6 of top 10 reference labs
Pharmaceutical companies with a development pipeline in Precision Medicine are wise to inform their strategy by evidence from data sources with this level of depth, to avoid delaying innovations reaching the patients for whom they are meant to improve the outcomes, as it can take up to 4.5 years for a biomarker test to be developed and it takes up to 3 years for over 70% of labs to get ready to offer a new biomarker test. These timelines are underscoring the need to start on time with the companion diagnostic strategy to deliver innovation to the right patient at the right time.
Access to data with this level of data coverage on DXRX-The Diagnostic Network® will provide a better understanding of a patient’s diagnostic journey from diagnosis to treatment decision in the indication of interest, even if patients move from lab to lab, through data points around:
- Testing events
- Test results
- Test sequence
- Stage of disease
The depth of the data coverage on DXRX not only enables evidence-based decisions for the diagnostic strategy of precision therapeutics as earlier described4 but it also accelerates clinical trial enrolment by identifying eligible patients through its lab network, making sure no patient who can benefit from precision therapeutics is left behind!
