Expanding support for Canadian cancer treatment data linkage and analysis


This funding, totalling $2.1 million and running until March 2017, will help Canadian provinces improve the ability of healthcare practitioners to understand patterns of cancer care and improve its quality.


The Coordinated Data Development Initiative will fund five treatment data linkage projects to be delivered by the BC Cancer Agency, Statistics Canada, Eastern Health-Newfoundland and Labrador, Cancer Care Nova Scotia and Health PEI.


“These projects will help develop infrastructure to support new data sets and create better links between provincial datasets, allowing for better and wider analysis of cancer treatment data that can help clinicians understand and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. This can ultimately lead to better care and outcomes,” says Nicole Beben, vice president, Strategy at the Partnership.
