Edits and 2012 Cancer Reporting to Reporters and Contractors - October 29
Dear Texas Cancer Reporters,
This letter is notification of the following updates for submitting cancer cases to the Texas Cancer Registry (TCR).
1. The Texas Cancer Registry is ready to convert to NAACCR Version 12.2 and implement the 12.2c edit set.
In order to convert our software to NAACCR Version 12.2, Web Plus will not be available Oct 31- Nov 1. During this time reporters will not be able to upload files or abstract cases.
If you have records abstracted in NAACCR Version 12.1 please submit by close of business Tuesday, October 30th.
The TX_122c edit set will be posted on our website November 2, 2012. TCR will begin accepting NAACCR Version 12.2 submissions for all years on November 3, 2012.
If your facility participates in the “Small Facility Casefinding Data Collection (CFDC) Project” or you are a CFDC contractor, you may continue to report 2011 data on SCL-DC. Web Plus will be implemented as part of the 2012 CFDC process.
2. 2012 Cancer Case Reporting – REMINDER NOTICE
The TCR recognizes that NAACCR 12.2 edit sets have been delayed. As a result, the TCR has suspended the compliance to the first quarter of 2012 cancer cases. However, all cancer cases admitted and/or diagnosed at your facility January – June 2012 must be submitted by December 31, 2012 in order to be compliant with the TCR.
It is important to notify your regional office if your facility has a significant increase or decrease in your caseload for 2012 in order to monitor your facility’s compliance. All cases for admission year 2012 are due June 30, 2013.
We appreciate your patience during our software transition period. Please address questions to your regional representative.
