The Cancer Registry at Texas Health Fort Worth is an information system designed for the collection, management, and analysis of data on persons with the diagnosis of cancer. Data collection in the registry includes, but is not limited to:
- Initial presentation of symptoms
- Date of confirmed diagnosis
- Diagnosic tests and procedures performed
- Anatomical site of origination
- Stage or extent of disease at the time of diagnosis
- Cancer therapy, including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone or immunotherapy
- Follow-up, including annual information about treatment, recurrence, and patient status
Texas Health Fort Worth's medical staff and administration utilize these data in a wide variety of ways to evaluate patient outcome, quality of life and satisfaction issues. In addition, local, state and national cancer agencies use registry data to make important public health decisions that maximize the effectiveness of limited public health funds, and to monitor for cancer trends, incidence rates, and survival analysis.
The Cancer Registry is also responsible for the scheduling and coordination of multidisciplinary weekly cancer conferences. These conferences provide an opportunity for discussion and treatment planning in the presence of other physicans' specialties and allied health professionals.
Confidentiality of patient identifying information and related medical data is strictly maintained at each Cancer Registry. Aggregated data are analyzed and published without any patient identifiers at all.
