TFS in partnership to conduct a global study on COVID-19 pandemic


TFS forms a partnership to conduct a real-world evidence study on COVID-19 pandemic to inform decision-makers.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread there is an increased need to analyse real-world evidence for prioritized questions shared by national governments and public health agencies. TFS partners with Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics (OHDSI) for the study, where TFS role will be to analyse the data that is collected from several Spanish Hospitals.

Analysing real world evidence, enables TFS to help inform decisionmakers using up to date information and provide immediate insights, where all real-world evidence will be made available in the public domain, while protecting patient’s privacy.

“I am very proud of TFS assisting the global efforts battling COVID-19. This study, combined with other ongoing efforts, can give insight that will assist health care professionals and decision markers, in fighting the pandemic” says Medical Doctor Bassem Saleh, CEO of TFS.
