National Program of Cancer Registry (NPCR) promotes public health by collecting, managing, and reporting up-to  date information about cancer. Cancer surveillance data are critical for monitoring the incidence of cancer, evaluating the successes of programs, and identifying additional needs for cancer prevention and control efforts.
For cancer surveillance data to continue to inform cancer prevention and control efforts, it needs to be complete, accurate, and timely. Since NPCR’s inception in 1992, CDC has been developing software applications to assist state and territorial central cancer registries (CCRs) with cancer case reporting and consolidation, data linkage, acquisition of cases from pathology labs & physician offices, case de-duplication, and other cancer surveillance activities that help registries produce and submit cancer data.
Though the development of NPCR software applications has improved cancer surveillance procedures, significant challenges remain with the amount of time it takes to collect, abstract, and report cancer case data. CCRs currently takes 24 months to report de-identified cancer cases to CDC; this is due to the manual processes undertaken by registries. These manual processes are labor-intensive, time-consuming, and may delay public health policy decision-making and the implementation of interventions to address cancer control objectives.
