NCI and AHRQ invite investigator-initiated grant applications for research
entailing the use of health claims data for cancer surveillance. Cancer
surveillance may include assessment of patterns of care, quality and outcomes
of care, and health disparities across the continuum of treatment. Projects
sought under this Program Announcement (PA) may focus on treatment and
outcomes at the patient-specific level or include influences from the
provider or broader health-system level. In addition to studies of cancer
treatment and outcomes, responses to this PA may also initiate analyses to
expand understanding of the capability of and methods needed to use claims
data for cancer surveillance. Health claims include secondary data sources
such as the linked SEER-Medicare data
(http://healthservices.cancer.gov/seermedicare/), databases with multiple
payers such as the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) database
(http://www.ahrq.gov/data/hcup/), fee-for-service insurance bills for
medical, rehabilitative, or other health care services, managed care
encounter data, and discharge summaries.

This PA relates to priority areas for NCI and AHRQ. Projects under this PA
may address two priorities, improving the quality of cancer care and reducing
cancer-related health disparities, as identified by NCI in The Nation's
Investment in Cancer Research (http://plan.cancer.gov/). AHRQ supports
general health services and outcomes and effectiveness research for a wide
range of clinical conditions, including cancer
