Cancer Registries tracks causes, diagnosis and treatment of cancer Southeast Georgia Health System

The Southeast Georgia Health System Cancer Care Centers participate in a statewide program to improve the quality of cancer detection and care.

Cancer registrars are data management experts working in cancer treatment and research settings. They find, interpret and record a wide range of demographic and medical information on people with cancer. The information is submitted to state and national cancer registries for use in research, treatment and prevention initiatives.

The Cancer Care Centers maintain a Cancer Registry, as required by state law, which tracks causes, diagnosis and treatment of cancer and certain blood disorders. By participating in this registry, the Cancer Care Centers are able to accurately determine cancer patient populations, measure outcomes of treatment and survival, and formulate plans for quality improvement.
