Cancer Data

The Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System (WCRS) intends to receive electronic cancer data submissions for Meaningful Use Stage 2 on behalf of Wisconsin's Division of Public Health beginning in the first half of 2014. Eligible Professionals who have met their Meaningful Use Stage 1 objectives and want to satisfy the Meaningful Use Stage 2 objective for cancer data submission are eligible to register. Data submissions must conform to the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) 2.0 standard. The technology used by the Eligible Professional to generate the cancer CDA message has to be a federally certified 2014 Edition EHR technology for this objective.

If you would like to register to submit HL7 CDA 2.0 cancer messages using your certified EHR technology, please visit the PHREDS registration page. To register, you will need the following information:

  • Organization name
  • Primary technical contact information (phone number and email address)
  • Primary Meaningful Use contact information, if applicable (phone number and email address)
  • Primary address
  • Meaningful Use stage and year, if applicable
  • EHR vendor name
  • EHR product name and version of product

For providers onboarding to meet Meaningful Use, the cancer program and other program areas will not begin the onboarding process until you register.
