2013 Admission Information - July 26
Dear Texas Cancer Reporters,
The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) is accepting completed cases diagnosed January 1, 2013 - forward and abstracted in NAACCR Version 12.
There are no additional reportable data items for 2013 therefore we will continue to use the 2012 Texas Cancer Registry Handbook for 2013. As stated in our communication of March 19, 2013, height (#9960), weight (#9961) and co-morbidities (#3110, #3120, #3130, #3140, #3150, #3160, #3161, #3162, #3163, #3164) along with the tobacco data items (#9965, #9966, #9967, #9968) continue to be required for all sites. Revisions for the 2012 Cancer Reporting Handbook can be referenced on our website at: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/tcr/publications/2012crhb/2012-Cancer-Reporting-Handbook.aspx under March 2013 Revisions.
Please note that the TCR is not currently accepting submissions in NAACCR Version 13 until we convert our system. Our tentative conversion is scheduled for late August 2013. We plan to begin accepting NAACCR 13 submissions in September 2013.
All data abstracted in Version 12 must be completed and submitted to the TCR prior to our conversion to NAACCR 13 or those cases will require re-abstracting in NAACCR Version 13.
Please comply with our Timely Reporting Calendar for 2012 and 2013 data submissions.
If you have questions or need clarification, please contact your regional representative.
Thank you for your continued support of the Texas Cancer Registry.
