Tracks causes, diagnosis and treatment of cancer at 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.
Current issue - 2015-2016
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.
