The Tumor Registry (also called the Cancer Registry) is a data source for the John Theurer Cancer Center for all reportable tumors that are diagnosed and/or treated at our facility. The Tumor Registry is staffed by certified tumor registrars (CTR) and administrative staff who are data management experts.
These experts interpret and collect a wide range of demographic, diagnostic, treatment, and follow-up information. This information is then submitted to state and national registries for use in research, treatment and prevention initiatives. JTCC physicians, researchers and healthcare administrators rely on these data to determine cancer patient populations and trends, measure outcomes and formulate plans for quality improvement.
