The Carson Tahoe Cancer Registry fulfills the state requirement to report statistics to the Nevada Central Cancer Registry on all cancer cases diagnosed and/or treated at our facility. The registry collects extensive data on each patient, including race, age, gender, primary cancer site, stage of the disease, and information on diagnosis and first course of treatment. The Nevada Central Cancer Registry shares information with data collection systems on a national level to look at trends and differences in types of cancers and treatments representing different geographic regions, races, ages, and genders. As with any medical information, it is reported confidentially.
The cancer registry plays an important role in evaluating clinical outcomes and the quality of medical care. The physicians here at Carson Tahoe Cancer Center conduct treatment reviews to verify that our patients are being treated appropriately according to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Treatment Guidelines.
