The real transformational ability comes not from the data itself but from the knowledge we extract from it.
At AbbVie, our diverse teams of life scientists, data scientists and engineers are continuously creating new ways of collecting, analyzing, and applying data to make a remarkable impact on patients’ lives. It’s part of a culture of sharing data across functions so everyone benefits. Here are some of the tools we’re creating together to help bring medicines to patients faster:
AbbVie R&D Convergence Hub (ARCH)
ARCH is the tool that our scientists use to extract knowledge from data. ARCH pulls together different data sets into one place, layers insights on top of the data, and incorporates information tools that allow us to ask new questions and gain more efficient insights. With ARCH, we can create custom dashboards to learn new things about diseases, discover new indications for existing treatments, and take a deeper look into understanding the molecular underprint of a condition. It’s data, democratized.
AbbVie Research Collaborative (ARC)
ARC is a health data platform that enables adults anywhere in the United States to partner with AbbVie’s world-class scientific researchers to share real-world health data, including medical records, genomic data, lifestyle and fitness data to help to tell a complete picture of their health. The real-world data we have access to allows us to ask ourselves questions regarding patients’ experiences to quantify their unmet needs from various perspectives.
