Copenhagen, Denmark

Booth C3-068

Whether you are a Market Access, RWE, HEOR, or Medical Affairs professional, LynxCare can give you access to rich insights gained from highly granular and qualitative fresh real-world data to answer your research questions throughout the drug development life cycle

We invite you to visit our booth and explore the possibilities the LynxCare solution has to offer firsthand. Learn how you can receive those deep insights that are needed to push your research studies forward, and with the level of quality necessary to improve patients’ lives.

What to expect

We will be showcasing our real-life use cases, and will demonstrate how, together with our partners, we have positively impacted patient outcomes. Our RWE-experts team will be available to answer your questions, and discuss potential collaborations. 

Set up a meeting through the calendar on the right for an informal talk, so we can listen to your needs and discuss where LynxCare can be of help. 👉

We look forward to seeing you at the Bella Center in Copenhagen!

Building Federated Data Networks With Common Data Models to Generate Insights Through Real-World Evidence Observational Studies in Oncology

Accessing and standardizing raw clinical data across multiple hospitals presents a challenge in Oncology. However, it is crucial to use real-world data sources such as electronic health records (EHR) to leverage untapped information. We are building a federated data network to facilitate GDPR-compliant data exchange of large datasets, with hospitals as owners. This network, governed by a common data model (CDM), is aimed at fostering multicenter, observational, real-world evidence (RWE) studies in Oncology, with breast cancer, lung cancer, and immunotherapy as therapeutic areas of focus.


Oncology studies are ongoing in participating Belgian hospitals using the LynxCare data processing technology over 4 different EHR systems to automatically process structured and unstructured data, using natural language processing for the latter, to generate OMOP-CDM databases. Variables (n = 1056) include demographics, comorbidities, cancer diagnosis, tumor staging, performance status, oncology treatments and procedures (including immune checkpoint inhibitors), anatomical pathology data (genomics), and adverse events. Collaborating with key opinion leaders (KOLs), we established an Oncology research group in Belgium that is redefining data dictionaries, establishing a shared comprehension per variable and enhancing data granularity.


To date, the Oncology data network comprises 71.572 patients, for which more than 5 million unstructured records were processed and there were 27149 mappings from structured data sources (e.g., administered and prescribed medication, laboratory parameters, multidisciplinary Oncology consult, and mortality). More than 1000 quality-controlled variables are measured continuously to identify patterns, trends, and associations between datapoints and patient outcomes.


Clinicians can leverage the resulting RWE to develop personalized treatment plans based on patients’ specific characteristics, disease progression, and prognostic factors. These insights can also inform evidence-based guidelines and regulatory decisions. This groundbreaking initiative will expand to other European countries, providing a sandbox of federated data networks for multicenter RWE studies in Oncology, but also paving the way towards precision medicine.
