Pardee Hospital Cancer Registry

The registry is a detailed and precise collection of data on every patient with a diagnosis of cancer treated at Pardee Hospital. In most states, this information is required by state law to be reported, along with other diseases and conditions. There is also data in the registry on some non-cancerous tumors, such as benign brain tumors. Collected data includes patient demographics, such as:

  • Family history
  • Social history
  • Occupational history
  • Anatomical site of tumor
  • Cell type of tumor
  • Stage at the time of diagnosis
  • Treatment received
  • Current status of the patient

The data is submitted on an annual basis to the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) and on a monthly basis to the North Carolina Central Cancer Registry. This information is submitted by hospitals throughout the United States so that researchers have complete, accurate data to work with in determining incidence and mortality rates, as well as in planning clinical trials and other research.

Once a patient is entered into the cancer registry database, they must be followed up with at least once a year for the remainder of their life. This is done in a number of ways, such as review of the electronic medical record, letters to physicians or other hospitals, letters to patients and reviews of the local obituaries. Pardee Hospital is required to have current follow-up on at least 90 percent of our patients. This information helps statisticians to determine how patients live with certain stages of cancer and serves as a reminder for patients to schedule check-ups on a routine basis.
