Computerized Registries

A computerized registry is more efficient than a manual registry, and the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons now requires approved cancer programs to maintain computerized records. Registry software systems incorporate abstracted follow-up information into appropriate fields and files within the system. Computerized registries rely on the software to compute the follow-up due date. The concept is the same for computerized registries as previously described for manual registries.
