Agnesian Cancer Care participates in the Cancer Registry. The Cancer Registry is a Cancer Care department which collects cancer data on each patient who is diagnosed and/or treated at Agnesian HealthCare. Agnesian Cancer Care is accredited through the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons which is a joint program with the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) and the American Cancer Society (ACS). The NCDB is a nationwide oncology outcomes database for commission-accredited cancer programs which collects data on all types of cancer and is tracked and analyzed. The data is then used to track cancer trends to be used for quality improvement. The Agnesian Cancer Care Cancer Registry is required to collect and submit specific data items to the NCDB.
Some of the individuals that are diligently working to improve cancer care through measuring outcomes include:
Cheryl M.- “The data that is collected by Cancer Registry is used to evaluate patient outcome, quality of life, and also to help give the best possible treatment and care for our patients. I am proud to be working “behind the scenes” to help win the fight against cancer.”
