We have the answer to your questions
Actionable Real World Evidence Network
A platform that helps hospitals generate, share and use treatment insights to achieve better patient care.
We help hospitals by giving insights into the daily practice using data analysis, enabling them to benchmark their clinical practice against others, allowing clinicians to learn from others by getting a view outside their hospital walls and empowering hospitals to identify improvement potential in the treatments they offer.

Frequently asked questions
ARWEN makes your real-world data (RWD) more actionable: generating insights in a way that s fast, scalable and transparent. With ARWEN collecting, standardising and analysing RWD for treatment improvement projects is no longer a struggle.
Actionable means you can act upon the insights we provide. They answer your questions about how to improve the care of your patients.
There is no investment needed from the hospitals. Hospitals can join for free and benefit continuously.
ARWEN allows hospitals to get answers to their own specific questions in the treatment improvement projects they participate in. This helps hospitals to identify improvement potential in their care to patients. Besides that, hospitals and clinicians can compare their own care to that of a benchmark. On top of that, ARWEN members get access to regular useful insight reports and international best practices that can help them improve the care they provide to patients.
No. ARWEN was founded by LOGEX after seeing the barriers that hold many healthcare providers back when trying to apply RWE to improve care. LOGEX believes it can help remove these barriers whilst remaining a trusted and impartial third party. That is why it chose to fund the start-up of ARWEN entirely independently.
The hospital is always the data controller, in compliance with GDPR terms. ARWEN ensures continuous control of hospitals on your data:
- Your data is yours – ARWEN is not a data broker
- Your data is safe – The privacy and security of your data always comes first

Patient-level data will not be shared. We are GDPR compliant, so only with the explicit permission of the hospital aggregated anonymised data can be shared. For most projects, only population level data is required. For sharing aggregated anonymised data at the hospital level, additional permission is always needed.
ARWEN is powered by LOGEX. An industry-leading healthcare analytics company. LOGEX deploys data security and privacy by design. Our dedicated information security office monitors security procedures in-depth, assuring your data is safe and secure. In addition, we support multiple user authorisation levels to control the privacy and transparency of your data.
We are fully GDPR compliant and ISO27001 certified.
ARWEN does not sell anonymised data. ARWEN ensures continuous control of your data. ARWEN is not a data broker.
The Data Processing Agreement (DPA) specifies the data retention period.
To obtain a longitudinal view of patients, we require at least three years of routine healthcare data- collected in all hospitals. This includes prescription data, medical procedures, and diagnosis codes (usually expressed as ICD10-codes).
Complex RWE treatment improvement projects
ARWEN aims to enable complex RWE treatment improvement projects and programmes. Additional data sources such as pathology, laboratory, imaging, and clinical outcomes are collected and linked to fully understand patient treatment and outcomes.
At LOGEX, we have worked for hospitals since 2008. In the past years, we have supported the extraction and analytics of RWD in local and international initiatives. For example, standards of care, the impact of COVID, patient pathway optimisation. We believe that collecting, standardising and analysing data to participate in more RWE treatment improvement projects should not have to be a struggle; that is why we have founded ARWEN.
