Impac Software Selects 2009 Cancer Registrar of the Year

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Impac Software, part of the Elekta Group, today awarded the 2009 Impac Software Registrar of the Year award to Deanna Derdelinghen, Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR(R)) at Stamford Hospital's Bennett Cancer Center in Stamford, Connecticut.

Impac Software's Registrar of the Year program honors cancer registrars who make valuable contributions to the success of their registry and extend their contributions to benefit the broader medical facility and community. This year, Impac Software received 46 nominations for 14 nominees, all of whom demonstrated an impressive level of professionalism and expertise.

Recognized for her efforts to promote growth and excellent patient care, Deanna Derdelinghen oversees all aspects of the ACoS, CoC accreditation process, management of related cancer program activities and Stamford's tumor registry. She also helps with grants and proposals for oncology-related continuing education programs, as well as supports physicians with cancer staging compliance and evidence-based treatment planning tools used to track and measure oncology patient care.

"I'm honored my peers nominated me, fortunate for the opportunities I've been given and blessed to be a part of such a fine organization," says Deanna Derdelinghen. "As Cancer Program Manager, I'm involved in many cancer program activities. This affords me the opportunity to participate in, as well as see first-hand all the wonderful things being done to support our patients."

Described by coworkers as "an individual who contributes greatly to the battle against cancer," Deanna's meticulous record keeping and attention to detail helped Stamford become first in the nation to be named a National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers facility from the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). In addition, Deanna's efforts also enabled the hospital to achieve commendation status from the ACoS/Commission on Cancer (CoC), as well as receive eight out of nine possible commendations from their last two ACoS Cancer Program surveys.

"Simply the best, Deanna is a great asset to our hospital and community," says Frank Masino, M.D. and Medical Director of Cancer Services at Stamford Hospital. "Without Deanna's great intelligence, diligence and passion, our program would not have achieved the status it has in our community. The hospital's accreditations, resulting largely from Deanna's guidance, also helps assure patients that our program is being held to the highest standards."

Impac Software also would like to announce the recipient for honorable mention: cancer registry and data specialist, Linda Boire, LPN, CTR of CVPH Oncology Data Center in Plattsburgh, New York. A dedicated employee of CVPH Oncology Data Center for more than 40 years, Linda also spends a great deal of her time raising money and awareness for the American Cancer Society.
