Access to the Hospital Comparison Benchmark Reports is limited to authorized persons affiliated with Commission on Cancer (CoC)-accredited cancer programs. A little more than 9.1 million cases diagnosed between 2003 and 2014 are available to users of this reporting tool. These reports include data for all types of cancer (categorized into 73 different analytic types). Users are allowed extensive control over the type of cases selected and have a number of covariates from which to select. In addition, users can generate three different types of reports showing:
- Data reported to the National Cancer Database (NCDB) from their own cancer registry
- Aggregated data by hospital system, state, region, or at the national level
- Comparisons of the cases submitted to the NCDB by the user's cancer program and all the other programs identified by the user in the comparative group
Cancer Cases Available in the Hospital Comparison Benchmark Reports by Tumor Type and AJCC Stage, 2000-2012.
The Hospital Comparison Benchmark Reports require a log-in, and can be accessed through CoC Datalinks.
