The reason to use hybrid research is to establish a better understanding of results
OXON is a full-service provider for single and multi-country observational studies with long term alliances to compete with the biggest CROs in observational studies worldwide.
Hybrid research can be defined as the combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques, where a qualitative approach is utilized to uncover the meaning and attitudes behind quantitative data.
At OXON we define Real-World hybrid studies as those where more than one design or type of data source is used to address the specific objectives of an observational, non-interventional study.
Hybrid study designs can help generate real-world evidence, providing an alternative solution path to the challenges presented by observational studies.
PROSPECTIVE-RETROSPECTIVE STUDY DESIGNS
Hybrid study designs that aim to generate high quality data, collected in a rapid and time-efficient manner, may be an option when traditional approaches are not suitable.
These studies are composite designs that combine elements of two basic designs (e.g. cohort designs and case-control studies), or that combine elements of a basic design with elements of a non-observational design.
Hybrid designs generate real-world evidence insights. OXON provides single and multi-country nested case-control, case-cohort and case-crossover studies for a better understanding of results. Each approach has unique strengths and weaknesses. Combining these approaches allows for filling evidence gaps more effectively.
