Abstract:

PSP INFORMATION GROUP, PLANS TO DEVELOP PROTOTYPE SOFTWARE TO DETECT GEOGRAPHICALLY LOCALIZED CHANGES IN CANCER INCIDENCE OR MORTALITY OVER TIME. THE SYSTEM WILL ANALYZE DATA COLLECTED BY LOCAL, REGIONAL, OR STATE CANCER REGISTRIES. THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR THE CANCER MANAGEMENT MAPPING SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH A PANEL OF EXPERTS COMPOSED OF A PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICER, A CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGIST, A NATIONALLY KNOWN CARTOGRAPHER, AND A CALIFORNIA REGIONAL CANCER REGISTRY PROGRAM MANAGER. THIS APPROACH WILL USE AN EXISTING GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATIONSYSTEM (GIS) COMBINED WITH A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS SOFTWARE PACKAGE. THE PROJECT WILL RELY ON EXISTING SOFTWARE WHEN POSSIBLE. A PORTION OF THE SOFTWARE NEEDS IDENTIFIED WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AS PART OF THE DELIVERABLE. IN THE PRESENT CONTEXT, THIS TECHNOLOGY MIGHT BE USED TO COMPARE CANCER INCIDENCE MAPS WITH MAPS OF ENVIRONEMENTAL DATA. THIS SAME TECHNOLOGY CAN BE APPLIED TO IDENTIFYING GEOGRAPHICALLY LOCALIZED CHANGES IN CANDER OVER TIME. IT CAN ALSO BE USED TO IDENTIFY SMALL OR LARGE GEOGRAPHIC AREAS WITH AN ELEVATEDCANCER RISK IN A SINGLE TIME PERIOD.
