Project Information (Project # 1509)       mCODE Dashboard

mCODE™ —short for Minimal Common Oncology Data Elements—is an initiative intended to assemble a core set of structured data elements for oncology electronic health records (EHRs). The goal is to facilitate cancer data interoperability and improve overall cancer data quality for patient care and research by establishing a set of elements that would form the basic data that would populate all EHRs for patients with cancer. mCODE™ has been created and is being supported by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO®) in collaboration with the MITRE Corporation.
