Information Exchange and Data Transformation (INFORMED)
Launched in 2015 at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with special authorities from the Department of Health and Human Services, INFORMED was a technology and data science incubator focused on supporting innovations to advance human health and public health priorities.
INFORMED functioned as a public-private collaboration sandbox to de-risk innovations with transformative potential in biomedical research and therapeutic development. The effort was instrumental in establishing the foundation for the use of real-world evidence, digital health solutions, and artificial intelligence/machine learning in drug development and regulatory decision making.
