Background: ROADMAP addresses the challenge of how to best inform clinical and health-policy decisions by studying how to build a population-based integrated data environment and enabling its visualization.

Method: ROADMAP has addressed the challenges of defining AD-relevant real-world outcomes based on literature reviews and consultation with experts and stakeholders. It then has surveyed a variety of data sources across Europe to find out the degree to which such real-world outcomes are captured.

Results: A Data Cube has been developed and offers a ‘landscape’ on data availability in Europe. This 3D ‘heat map’ assessment allows the visualization of the different data sources and how they are able to capture the different AD-outcomes, together with their relevance for the different disease stages.

Conclusion: Enabling the visualization of the AD-related data availability in different types of European data sources and the intrinsic gaps has proven to be a powerful tool for the design, planning and validation of the models and strategies used to guide future recommendations to enhance AD research.
