Code System InformationLink

"The College of American Pathologists (CAP) eCC (electronic Cancer Checklists) enables pathologists to use the CAP Cancer Protocols directly within their laboratory information system (LIS) workflow and to ensure that each report is completed with the necessary required elements. Most anatomic pathology (AP)-LIS vendors offer a CAP eCC synoptic module for reporting on surgical cancer resections and selected biopsies."

"The CAP eCC is based on the CAP Cancer Protocols and is produced under the guidance of the CAP Pathology Electronic Reporting (PERT) Committee, along with close interaction and advisement of the Cancer Committee.

The eCC is developed in collaboration with and partially underwritten by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additional collaborators include the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC), Cancer Care Ontario (CCO), and the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR).

The CAP currently is working with the California Cancer Registry (CCR) to offer the benefits of the eCC to California laboratories. CCR and the CAP are seeking out laboratories interested in participating in an ongoing project using the eCC to directly transfer cancer data to the central registry."
