Memorial's Cancer Center 2015 Annual Report – Cancer Registry:
Our Cancer Registrars play a vital role in capturing the cancer patient experience through the care continuum. Patient data is collected from diagnosis through the rest of the patient’s lifetime. The data provides essential information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research, and improve cancer prevention and screening programs (National Cancer Registrars Association, 2015). Memorial Medical Center's cancer registrars have been collecting data since 1978.
