The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) will provide an overview of activities to develop standard formats for anatomic pathology and clinic/physician office reporting to cancer registries using existing Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise constructs.
Kentucky Cancer Registry will present efforts to establish standardized electronic reporting from medical and radiation oncology practices throughout Kentucky, in partnership with CDC, the Kentucky Health Information Exchange (KHIE), and the Kentucky Regional Extension Center. Assessing the capacity of oncology electronic medical record (EMR) vendors to implement modern standard interfaces is an important aspect of this effort. Efforts to date will be presented, including progress towards integration with the KHIE, reception of the project by oncology practices, vendor feedback, and standards development.
Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center (MCR-ARC) will discuss their project to improve completeness of reporting to MCR by identifying primary care and specialty physician offices where electronic reporting from EHRs to the CCR can be implemented. MCR, in collaboration with the Missouri Health Information Technology (HIT) Assistance Center (AC), will identify and recruit providers and EHR vendors; collaborate with HIT AC staff, providers and EHR vendors to implement electronic reporting to MCR; complete an initial validation of content and format of data received; and conduct an evaluation of the project.
