Cancer-related services are consuming ever-increasing health resources ; along with this trend, health care costs are rising.
As health care planners, researchers, and policymakers formulate strategies to meet this challenge, they are looking to cancer registries and the health information system built around them as collectors of the most extensive information regarding cancer treatment in the U.S. Currently, there are multiple programs collecting and reporting data regarding cancer incidence, morbidity, mortality, and survival.
This report profiles cancer surveillance efforts in the U.S. and describes the National Coordinating Council for Cancer Surveillance, which was organized in 1995 to facilitate a collaborative approach among the organizations involved.
