Cancer Moonshot Data and Technology Team: Enabling a National Learning Healthcare System for Cancer to Unleash the Power of Data
These three areas will lay the foundations for a National Learning Healthcare System for Cancer, where we can learn from the contributed knowledge and experience of every cancer patient.
This article highlights the federal activities launched as part of the Cancer Moonshot to begin building the foundation of a National Learning Healthcare System for Cancer, as illustrated in Figure1. The exemplars here reflect some of the efforts that aim to impact cancer prevention, early detection, screening, treatment, and outcomes for cancer patients. The National Learning Healthcare System for Cancer will contribute to the scientific evidence base necessary to understand cancer, to design more effective strategies to reduce the burden of cancer, and to continuously improve and adjust cancer care.
