SEER-Medicare Health Outcomes Survey Linked Database

The SEER-MHOS database links two large population-based sources of data that provide detailed information about elderly persons with cancer. The data come from SEER's cancer registries that collect clinical, demographic and cause of death information for persons with cancer and the Medicare Health Outcomes Survey (MHOS) that provides information about the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of Medicare Advantage Organization (MAO) enrollees.

SEER-Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (SEER-CAHPS) Linked Data Resource

The SEER-CAHPS data set links 3 types of data: clinical (SEER), survey (CAHPS), and administrative/billing (Medicare claims and enrollment files). The data are linked through the collaborative efforts of NCI, the SEER registries, and CMS.
