This report and dataset inventory identifies federally funded data linkages that may facilitate patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) on economic outcomes for Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries. The work builds on a previous review, which identified a variety of data sources for PCOR economic research and recommended that linked data sources be considered to expand the availability of economic outcomes. The review of linked data on the Medicare FFS population will be valuable to researchers seeking to produce new empirical evidence and will help identify gaps and barriers in patient-centered economic research for this population.
