AMIA 2024 Clinical Informatics Conference, Minneapolis, MN

Are you attending the 2024 AMIA Clinical Informatics Conference? Join NCI Fellow, Austin Fitts, as he presents on the National Childhood Cancer Registry (NCCR) during the May 22 afternoon sessions. The NCCR links cancer registry data with harmonized real-world data for population-level research in childhood cancer. He will also share how NCCR’s harmonization process allows for more longitudinal studies and can serve as a model for similar data harmonization initiatives. There are future plans to publish the NCCR data model and make an initial harmonized data set available to the cancer research community through the upcoming NCCR Data Platform.
