Cancer Information & Population Health Resource

The Cancer Information & Population Health Resource (CIPHR) Its two primary functions are: 1) Support of research methods, systems, and databases to enable efficient, systematic, innovative, and rigorous population-science research using big data sources in and beyond North Carolina, and 2) Maintenance of a substantial multi-payer big data repository of linked, population-based data across North Carolina.

Patient-Reported Outcomes Core

The Patient-Reported Outcomes Core (PRO-Core) helps cancer outcomes researchers collect data directly from patients. PRO-Core provides consultation regarding design and implementation of patient-reported data capture, at both the proposal and protocol writing phases of research. The PRO-Core system enables the administration of surveys via the web, interactive voice response (IVR), and computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI); is able to interface with other modes of data collection such as Fitbit pedometer; and allows advanced survey scheduling and reporting.
