Proposed Project: Comparative Effectiveness Research Inventory—OMB No. 0990-New-Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).
Abstract: The Office of the Assistance Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) is requesting approval by OMB for the collection of information submitted by content users directly to a web-based inventory of comparative effectiveness research (CER). The CER Inventory will categorize and catalogue Federal and non-Federal CER outputs and activities across four main domains: Research, human & scientific capital (e.g., training/education, methods development), data infrastructure, and dissemination & translation. The CER inventory will serve as a valuable tool for researchers, providers, patients, policymakers, and other users.
The CER inventory will draw upon primary data sources, including PubMed, HSRProj, ClinicalTrials.gov, and NIH RePORTER. Working with these four major sources and using the Federal Coordinating Council for CER's definition of CER and strategic framework, selection criteria and tools to select and extract the appropriate subsets of these datasets for inclusion in the CER inventory will be identified. In addition, content owners wishing to submit CER records to the CER inventory will be directed first to submit such records to one of these main primary source databases, as appropriate. This method will not only help to augment these existing databases, it will enable efficient and effective capture of CER information for the CER Inventory via CER search filters, etc., that have been developed for those respective source databases. If candidate CER records under consideration are not suitable for submission to one of these main databases, an alternative method that allows for direct submissions to the CER inventory will be made available to content users. Examples include reports and published articles or projects and programs that focus on areas of CER outside of primary research (e.g., training and education). The pilot inventory tool will provide a web form that may be used by content owners to submit CER records, subject to validation. This process for direct submission will draw from the experience with content owner submissions for such established databases as HSRProj and ClinicalTrials.gov.
