Reporting by Pathologists
Research outcomes and future advancements in cancer treatment depend on the quality of the data provided to cancer registries. As a pathologist, the information you provide to CCR is of critical importance because it raises the level of diagnostic accuracy. Your participation in reporting ensures the data received by CCR is highly reliable and accurate.
Electronic reporting can further drive the standardization of cancer reporting and can also increase the efficiency and timeliness of reporting. In accordance with California Assembly Bill 2325, all pathologists will be required to report cancer diagnoses electronically before January 1, 2019.
