Submissions - September 29
Dear Texas Cancer Reporters,
The Texas Cancer Registry is working diligently on our system to be able to accept cases in NAACCR 12.1 format. Regardless of your reporting format, please submit your 2010 and prior cases to the Texas Cancer Registry as soon as possible. Be sure to indicate which reporting NAACCR format you are submitting. If submitting in 12.0 you will receive a detailed confirmation email. Submissions in 12.1 will receive an email letting you know we got your file/submission but a detailed confirmation email will not be sent until those cases have been uploaded.
Please do not submit cases diagnosed in 2011. We anticipate our system will be ready for NAACCR Version 12.1 and cases diagnosed in 2011 in early October.
The TCR will be distributing an updated 12.1 SCL for those reporters currently using our current SCL reporting software. Distribution is scheduled for October 6, 2011. Be advised that the update will be implemented during the normal update process when you log into SCL. Please be sure to submit all 2010 cases prior to this date. Failure to submit all 2010 and prior cases will result in those cases having to clear the 12.1 TCRCER editset.
If your facility participates in the “Small Facility Casefinding Data Collection (CFDC) Project”, the 2011 reporting requirements will be implemented as part of the 2011 CFDC process.
If you have any questions please direct them to your regional representative or let me know. The TCR will send out a letter via email once we are able to accept 2011 cases.
