  • CancerLinQ. ASCO’s vision for CancerLinQ is to assemble and analyze all of that information in a central knowledge base, which will grow “smarter” over time. Specifically, the system will:
    • Upload clinical data stored in electronic health records (EHRs) from patients in multiple practices
    • Aggregate information from EHRs, new clinical trials and published guidelines
    • Identify trends and associations between myriad variables, in order to generate new hypotheses
    • Allow physicians and researchers to evaluate those hypotheses and determine which ones may lead to improved care in real-world settings
    • Enable clinicians and researchers to quickly apply those conclusions, forming a continuous cycle of learning.
  • The Economist 10.20.13. A substantial body of scientific research, including biomedical research, is not replicable or has basic errors. This reviews much of the evidence supporting that conclusion.
