Cancer registry

Also known as: National cancer registry

Cancer registrars capture a complete summary of the history, diagnosis, treatment and disease status for every cancer patient. Registrars' work leads to better information that is used in the management of cancer, and ultimately, cures.

On the surface, reporting to the national cancer registry may seem like simple data collection, but it’s much more than that for the Providence cancer registry team.  Our analysts pore over the charts of 1,700 new cancer cases a year, tracking the diagnosis, treatment and outcome of each in the unending quest to improve outcomes for cancer patients.
