2019 GenEDITS Plus 5 Editing Software

The CoC recommends hospital registrars run the regular GenEDITS program the software vendors have embedded in their software. As a supplement, CoC-accredited programs may use GenEDITS Plus 5 as a final check before submitting files.

The editing software linked from this page applies to all data submitted to the National Cancer Database (NCDB) or the Rapid Quality Reporting System (RQRS) during calendar year 2019. Please note that submissions will be accepted in NAACCR version 16.0 and 18.0.

Important: NCDB is reverting back to supporting the generic GenEDITS Plus 5 software from the CDC website. The instructions cover the complete customization of the GenEDITS Plus 5 software for use with the NCDB and RQRS submissions.
