American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

EDITS Software and Metafiles

The software and edits linked from this page apply to all data submitted to the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) or the Rapid Quality Reporting System (RQRS) during calendar year 2015.

Software providers are currently distributing a registry software upgrade compliant with NAACCR version 15.0. The upgrade will convert registry data from NAACCR layout 14.0 to 15.0 (it may be called 140 and 150). Please select the link appropriate below for the NAACCR Record Layout currently in use at your registry.

Beginning May 1, the NCDB will no longer support the use of GenEDITS Plus version 1.2.8 to pre-edit data prior to submission to the NCDB. All data submissions should be pre-edited using GenEDITS Plus version 4.

Note: Prior to submission to NCDB, GenEDITS Plus should be run on the actual data file to be submitted.
