The Cancer Registry bridges the information gap by capturing the whole picture of the disease from diagnosis to end of life as each patient is followed for the rest of his or her life. The Registry contains complete information including all treatment received, both within and outside of the hospital setting. It provides integrated data to form a complete cancer record of care provided. The Registry also reminds physicians and patients of the need for continued follow-up examinations.
The Cancer Registry helps our Cancer Committee evaluate and improve the care and services we provide. All information is confidential. Statistics are sent to the Colorado Central Cancer Registry, which in turn offers information to the National Institute of Health.
