The company has announced that it will provide Sanofi with information going back to 1994 for its full Real World dataset France & UK, powered by its proprietary THIN database.

Under the terms of the agreement, the state-of-the-art dataset will be provided and immediately available for processing with Artificial Intelligence technologies, which coupled with the strong support of Cegedim Health Data experts to Sanofi’s Real World Evidence and medical teams, will drive improvement in patient care in Sanofi’s numerous therapeutic areas.

The company says that its strategic collaboration with Sanofi, as one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, confirms Cegedim’s leadership position as the most trusted healthcare data stakeholder and aims to accelerate the digital revolution in European health.

Jean-Claude Labrune, Cegedim chairman and CEO, said: “This historic collaboration with one of the global pharmaceutical industry’s leaders is proof of our European expertise on real world data and our ability to make it “actionable”. The depth of the history and robustness of the THIN data have led to more than 600 scientific articles”.
