Cancer Data Reporting

The New Jersey State Cancer Registry (NJSCR) is currently capable of registering Eligible Providers’ (EP) intent to send electronic Cancer Data for those EPs who want to satisfy the MU Stage 2 objective for cancer data submission.  NJSCR will be ready to start actual interface testing of Cancer Data starting sometime in the second half of 2014. However, the EP can start working with the registry to send test MU files in the first half of 2014. NJSCR will notify registered EPs when the Cancer Registry is capable of receiving Cancer Data in the required Meaningful Use format.

The NJSCR is a population-based registry that collects data on all cancer cases diagnosed and/or treated in New Jersey since October 1, 1978. The NJSCR serves the entire state of New Jersey.

Note:  All providers, including hospitals and physicians, regardless of Meaningful Use, are required to report cancers to the NJSCR within 6 months of diagnosis as specified in N.J.A.C. 8:57A.

Meaningful Use

Data submissions must conform to the HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) 2.0 standard and sent from a Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT).

How To Get Started

EPs who are ready to register their intent to send Cancer Data in the required MU format can start by filling out the Cancer Reporting Form.
