Registry of the Future Open Forum: Real-Time Reporting Update and Discussion

Over the past several years, NAACCR hosted several sessions focused on the “Registry of the Future". One of the common themes emanating from those sessions is that the registry of the future must be able to produce incidence rates in a more timely manner to meet customers' needs. The Assessment of Central Cancer Registry Timeliness and Reporting Standards (ACCR-TRS) Task Force is focusing on this aspect of the Registry of the Future to 1) determine barriers, challenges, and opportunities to improve timeliness of cancer reporting; and, 2) investigate the feasibility of changing central registry reporting timeliness standards to reflect better current practices and needs of registries and their customers. This webinar is a presentation of the results of the Central Registry Survey: Feasibility of Improving Timeliness and Reporting Standards distributed in May 2016. To augment what we learned from the survey, the webinar will also include a brief presentation by the 12-Month Data Task Force, describing results from their evaluation of the completeness and quality of 12-month data submitted by registries to NAACCR in their annual call for data.
