Cancer & Clinical Registry

Improve Patient Outcomes with Quality Clinical Data

Recruiting and keeping your qualified registry staff is a major concern given the sparse number of professionals in the industry. By law, providers are expected to provide timely, accurate, and complete data on all cancer diagnoses. Inevitably, an explosive backlog of abstraction and follow up cases can grow, threatening compliance and the risk of fines.

 

As one of the industry’s largest employers of certified Oncology Data Specialists (previously known as CTRs) and clinical data abstractors, we develop and retain the highest caliber workforce in the industry. With an average of 8 years' tenure, our team of certified revenue cycle professionals are qualified to gather, analyze, and record data for accrediting agencies, such as the Commission on Cancer (CoC) and clinical data registries for State, National or Professional Associations.

 

From case-finding/screening, clinical data abstraction, classification/coding, staging and follow up, we ensure these clinical abstracts are thorough and accurate to support accreditation for a healthcare organization by specific registries. You will benefit from greater accuracy, efficiency, compliance, and high-quality clinical data to monitor patient survival, and support treatment methods, research efforts and outcomes reporting.
