Part of Northwest Hospitalís comprehensive cancer program, the Cancer Registry helps healthcare providers learn more about cancer by tracking important trends in types of cancer and cancer treatment. The Cancer Registry collects the hospitalís cancer data, analyzes it and reports it annually to state and national cancer databases, including the American College of Surgeons National Cancer Database. Under the guidance of the hospitalís Cancer Committee, the Cancer Registry maintains data on each patientís type of cancer, course of treatment, response to treatment and medical status for the patientís lifetime.
