Breast Cancer Registry Pilot Program, Funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure

The Breast Cancer Registry Pilot Program has successfully concluded.

From September 2009 to December 2010, twenty diverse oncology practices participated in the Breast Cancer Registry Pilot Program. Three goals of the Pilot Program were to:

  1. Generate an anonymized breast cancer registry database to inform future quality of care and research initiatives.
  2. Evaluate practices' perceived burden, value, usefulness, and effectiveness of patient discussions regarding treatment and survivorship using the treatment plan and summary reports generated by the Breast Cancer Registry.
  3. Evaluate patients' perspectives regarding treatment and survivorship discussions integrating the treatment plan and summary reports generated by the registry.

Overall, oncologists and their staff expressed satisfaction with the registry. The treatment plans and summaries generated from the registry were overwhelmingly accepted by patients, oncologists, and other medical personnel.

Thank you to the participating practices and all the staff whose hard work made this project successful!
