Each Idaho hospital, out-patient surgery center, and pathology laboratory is responsible for the complete ascertainment of all data on cancer diagnoses and treatments provided in its facility within six months of diagnosis.
Sources for identifying eligible cases include hospitals, out-patient surgery centers, private pathology laboratories, free-standing radiation centers, physicians, death certificates, and other state cancer registries that
have an Idaho resident diagnosed and/or treated for cancer.
When a cancer case is reported from more than one source the information is consolidated into one record.
For Cancer Registrars
Primary site, behavior, grade, and histology are coded according to the International Classification of Disease for Oncology. Data items are coded following the rules of the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR),
the National Cancer Institute’s SEER program, and the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. The standard format documents address data items, data item definitions, and transmission specifications.
For Pathology Laboratories
The scope of this document is limited to standards and guidelines to transmit cancer information from pathology laboratories to CDRI. The standard format documents address data items, data item definitions, and transmission specifications.
CDRI plans to accept cancer registry reporting from eligible providers wishing to demonstrate Stage 3 Meaningful Use. Transport methods include PHIN-MS (Public Health Information Network Messaging System), Meaningful Use WebPlus Application, and secure file transmissions thru NeoCertified. All methods use a secure messaging platform that can provide a common approach to security requirements such as data encryption and authentication.
