Web Plus Replaces WS-FTP and SANDCRAB Lite Software - April 2, 2012
Dear Texas Cancer Reporters,
Within the next few months, the TCR is replacing its current registry software with Registry Plus™, a software suite of applications provided by the National Program of Cancer Registries—Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (NPCR—CDC).
The Web Plus software application will replace both WS-FTP and SANDCRAB Lite (SCL) for secure file transfer (e.g., cancer reporter submissions), as well as abstracting cases.
We plan to transition all WS-FTP users within the next two months and SCL users over the next six–nine months. Additional information on exact start dates and webinar training will be sent to all reporters and software vendors over the next few weeks.
The first 30-minute webinar training on using Web Plus for secure file transfer is planned for Wednesday April 18, 2012 (time, still to be determined).
If your facility participates in the “Small Facility Casefinding Data Collection (CFDC) Project” or you are a CFDC contractor, additional information will be provided at a later date, specific to the CFDC process.
For additional details about Web Plus, please view the CDC hyperlink: http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/npcr/tools/registryplus/wp.htm.
