Importance of Reporting Patient Race and Ethnicity to WCRS
WCRS and all state cancer registries in the National Program of Cancer Registries ask health care providers to report patient race and ethnicity information. Detailed race and ethnicity information on cancer patients can help improve clinical care, as well as help effectively target cancer prevention and early detection programs. Please read this new detailed information about the importance of reporting patient race and ethnicity to the WCRS (PDF, 37 KB).
Please note: A new version of AbstractPlus software is expected to be released later in 2013 or early 2014. This new version will replace all earlier versions and is compliant with all state reporting requirements. A link to the new version will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
