Saint Joseph's Oncology Data Registry

For nearly 30 years, Saint Joseph's Oncology Data Registry has maintained vital cancer information. The cancer data registry is the linchpin in evaluating all aspects of staging, treatment and follow-up care provided by a cancer program. Review of mobidity and mortality of each disease site by stage, age, sex and treatments are a critical process of any quality program. Saint Joseph's has had a mandatory reporting of all cancers diagnosed and treated at the hospital for more than 40 years.

More than 20,000 patients are entered into the database, with annual follow-up of more than 9,000 cases. Individual patient information remains strictly confidential.

The registry provides statistical data for medical staff, administration and oncology research. Lifetime follow-up is conducted on all patients diagnosed and/or treated at Saint Joseph's.

Saint Joseph's has been certified by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (ACoS,CoC) for more than 20 years, most recently in 2006. Saint Joseph's is one of Georgia’s contributing hospitals to the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program of the Federal Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) branch.
