Cancer Registry Support

The Cancer Registry fulfills the center's legal requirement to submit data on cancer cases to a statewide registry. In addition, the registry provides data for UMHS operations and research.

Cancer Center Informatics is involved with the registry on several levels. Cancer Center Informatics recently helped the registry analyze their staffing levels and investigate whether technological solutions would help them manage their caseload. Currently, CCI is building a reporting platform to supply operational and research data from the registry to interested parties within the Cancer Center. For example, in order to better understand the center's patient population and catchment area, CCI helped visualize the geographic distribution of patients in the registry and draw comparisons with state cancer data.
