Cancer Registry

(228) 867-4000

A Cancer Registry is an information system designed for the collection, management, and analysis of data on persons with the diagnosis of a malignant or neoplastic disease (cancer). Our Cancer Registry can be classified into this type:

Health care institution registry maintains data on all patients diagnosed and/or treated for cancer at their facility. Health care facilities report cancer cases to the central or state Cancer Registry as required by law.

Cancer Registrars ensure that timely, accurate, and complete data are maintained on all types of cancer diagnosed and/or treated within a health care institution or within a defined population. These data are then used to inform a wide variety of public health decisions and provide rich information for cancer diagnosis and treatment education.
