College of American Pathologists Releases New Updated CAP Electronic Cancer Checklist (CAP eCC)
Date:1/8/2010

CAP eCC Advances Health Information Interoperability for Cancer Reporting and Research

Northfield, Ill. (Vocus) January 7, 2010 -- The College of American Pathologists (CAP) released the new CAP electronic Cancer Checklists (CAP eCC)—the XML version of the updated CAP Cancer Checklists. The CAP eCC is a tool used to enhance and advance cancer reporting.

The latest CAP eCC release contains all of the new and updated content in the CAP Cancer protocols posted October 2009 CAP Web site at www.cap.org/cancerprotocols. The CAP eCC facilitate uniform cancer description and reporting, including elements from the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual 7th Edition. Content is also partially encoded with SNOMED Clinical Terms® (SNOMED CT®)—a globally recognized controlled medical vocabulary.

The amount of information pathologists provide in their reports on cancer specimens has increased in recent years, due to the expansion of scientific knowledge about cancer and continued advances in healthcare, such as molecular diagnostics and personalized medicine.

"A new cancer diagnosis profoundly affects a patient's life. A generation ago, a patient's cancer pathology diagnosis was often just a few lines long,” said John Madden, MD, PhD, FCAP, associate professor of pathology at Duke University Medical Center, Durham, N.C. and co-chair of the CAP’s Pathology Electronic Reporting Task Force. “With the current explosion of knowledge about cancer, the pathology diagnosis now often extends to multiple pages, and incorporates individualized information about literally dozens of critical tumor features, including the molecular and genetic characteristics of the patient's cancer, that play a major role in determining treatment success.”
