Presentation (PPTX, 5.2 MB)


This webinar provides a brief overview of the SEER-CAHPS data resource, which is a linkage between the NCI’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program cancer registry data, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Medicare Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (Medicare CAHPS) patient experience surveys, and Medicare claims. The presenters describe a new measure included in SEER-CAHPS, the SEER-CAHPS Illness Burden Index (SCIBI), which provides a summary comorbidity score based on information from multiple clinical and patient-reported domains.

This webinar will be archived on the SEER-CAHPS website.
