One of the functions of the Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System (WCRS) is to provide data for research related to cancer prevention or control. Protecting patient confidentiality is of the utmost importance to WCRS and is required by Wisconsin Statute s. 255.04. Data containing personal identifiers or information on very small geographic areas can only be released for Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved research with approval from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Data Governance Board.
