Statistical Considerations for Studying the Cancer Care Continuum Using EHR Data

The cancer care continuum describes the sequence of healthcare related to cancer, beginning with screening and progressing through diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. Many points in this continuum are best studied with observational data, and data from electronic health records (EHR) are well suited to this purpose because they reach an enormous population and allow us to characterize cancer care in community practice. Despite this potential, many aspects of EHR data pose a challenge to valid inference including confounding by indication, misclassification of exposures and outcomes, missing data, and informative observation schemes. In this talk, I will present an overview of the opportunities for studying the cancer care continuum using EHR data. I will present examples of substantive studies of cancer care that motivated methodological investigations to overcome limitations of EHR data. For each example, I will describe the statistical challenge, introduce methodology to address the challenge, and present the results of implementing alternative approaches using EHR data. Finally, I will conclude with a discussion of general considerations for using EHR data to study healthcare outcomes and delivery in the community, highlighting areas where additional methodological development is needed.
