The Baylor Scott & White Research Institute Tumor Registry catalogues consented data on various types of cancer diagnosed and/or treated within the Baylor Scott & White system. These data are then used to inform select public health decisions and provide rich information for cancer diagnosis and treatment education.
The information collected is not limited to the episodic information contained in the healthcare facility record. Staff bridge also capture a complete summary of the patient’s disease from diagnosis through their lifetime. The abstract, or summary, provides an ongoing account of the cancer patient’s history, diagnosis, treatment and current status.
