Scalable PArtnering Network for CER: Across Lifespan, Conditions, and Settings
This project will develop a distributed research network, which will create linkages across health care systems to provide access to current patient-level data that supports a dynamic foundation for conducting observational investigations and improves recruitment for interventional research. Over time, the network will expand to facilitate study of broad spectrums of treatments for multiple health conditions in complex and diverse populations across multiple types of health delivery systems.

Determining Processes of Cardiovascular Care Relevant to Complex Patients

We will study an historical cohort of adults with an initial diagnosis of cancer during the period 1999 to 2007. We will a) assess the attainment of goals for specific components of primary, secondary, and ‘tertiary’ prevention of coronary heart disease as a function of cancer prognosis, overall morbidity and the interaction between them, and b) assess the comparative effectiveness of these coronary heart disease prevention interventions on a composite coronary heart disease outcome.
