Advancing Innovative Comparative Effectiveness in Cancer Diagnostics (ADVICE)

PI: Scott Ramsey, MD, PhD

This project will establish a multi-disciplinary and cross-institutional network of health delivery systems and researchers in Western Washington State (ADVICE) compiling regional population-based data from a variety of health care delivery systems, including fee-for-service private plans, public agencies, and a large managed care system. This unique resource will conduct retrospective and prospective community-based comparative effectiveness research on cancer diagnostics with a focus on observational and randomized, rapid-turnaround pragmatic studies.
