The CMMC Cancer Registry Helps Cancer Researchers
Central Maine Comprehensive Cancer Center assists the field of cancer research by recording and reporting cancer statistics. Our Cancer Registry includes a data system that collects, manages and analyzes cancer patient data. Our data is available to all cancer researchers nationwide and internationally.
The data is also used at CMMC to educate medical staff, analyze treatment results, and evaluate the quality of care. The data system is managed by a Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR).
The Registry obtains continually updated information through hospital, physician and patient contact. We ask for our patients' help in keeping information current. All cancer patient information is treated with confidentiality; cancer data is used without personal identifiers.
The Cancer Registry helps contribute to improved outcomes for patients with cancer.
