Data Collection

Collect data on the duration of hospital stays

The financial toxicity of pediatric cancers is real, not only to individuals, but also to the insurance system and society. For example, 800 neuroblastoma patients in the US are a $1.5 Billion industry, not including relapse, life-long complications, and complex outcomes (e.g. secondary cancers). A goal of new CCDI products should seek to improve outcomes at reduces costs. Collecting hospitalization and duration data would be important to better resolve these issues.
