The Cancer Registry plays an integral role in our American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (C0C) accredited program. The registry is a data system analysis of data on persons with the diagnosis of cancer, certain blood disorders and benign central nervous system tumors. The patient had to have been diagnosed and/or treated at our facility. The registry works with physicians and administrators to provide support for cancer program development, ensure compliance with regulatory reporting requirements and standards. In addition, it serves as a resource for statistical and cancer information. The registry coordinates the COC accreditation process and ensures that OSF Saint Anthony’s Health Center meets or exceeds all COC program standards.
In 2015, 236 new patients were added to the registry. The top diagnosed sites were breast, lung, hematological (blood/bone marrow disorders), prostate and colorectal. Since 1991, 8,300 patients have been entered into the registry database with the registry currently providing annual follow-up to 2,500 cases. Any changes in the patient’s address, contact information or treating physician(s) can be reported to the Cancer Registry at (618) 462-5626. – Debbie DeSherlia, Cancer Data Coordinator
