The purpose of a resulting procurement shall be to acquire support from non academic-based community hospital cancer centers to provide a coordinated program in order to research how best to accomplish the following within the six major areas of focus:

a. Healthcare Disparities - Develop new or expanded programs for healthcare disparities to increase outreach to the uninsured, underrepresented, and disadvantaged populations for the continuum of cancer care--prevention, screening, treatment, follow-up care, palliative care, survivorship plans, and end-of-life care; develop new or expanded programs in navigating patients through the cancer care continuum; and institute tracking of race and ethnicity for all cancer center activities according to OMB categories (http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/fedreg/directive_15.html and http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-01-053.html).


b. Clinical Trials - Increase accruals to NCI-sponsored clinical trials, especially for underrepresented and disadvantaged populations; increase infrastructure to conduct early phase clinical trials; and increase physician participation in clinical trials.


c. Information Technology - Increase knowledge of infrastructure requirements, necessary interfaces, and capability for adoption/adaption of specific components of NCI's cancer Bioinformatics Grid caBIG® (http://cabig.cancer.gov/) for community hospital settings, and implementation of appropriate caBIG®
d. tools; increase implementation of electronic health records and exploration of the application of electronic health records in the provision of cancer care to link private practice physicians and patients; and participate in NCCCP network data exchange projects.


e. Biospecimens - Progress towards implementing the NCI Best Practices for Biospecimen Resources (http://biospecimens.cancer.gov/global/pdfs/NCI_Best_Practices_060507.pdf), thus enabling community hospitals to participate in biospecimen initiatives that will advance the NCI's research agenda.


f. Quality of Care - Advance the quality of cancer care provided in community settings by utilizing a multidisciplinary model of care, increasing the use of evidence-based guidelines, participating in a network level data-sharing cancer quality of care and improvement consortium, participating in the ASCO Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI), and increasing the use of genetic counseling and testing.


g. Survivorship & Palliative Care - Expand survivorship and palliative care programs through increased use of patient treatment summaries, survivorship care plans, and programs and resources for palliative care, psychosocial care, and end-of-life / hospice care.
