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

2019 Program Activity Record (PAR) Release

The updated 2019 PAR is now available to all accredited cancer programs not scheduled for survey in 2019 through CoC Datalinks. All previous PARs are now closed and cannot be re-opened. All cancer programs should only be entering activity in the 2019 version of the SAR or PAR. The PAR will allow you to add, delete, or edit any information or uploaded documentation for 2016, 2017, 2018, or 2019 cancer program activity.

Data from 2016, 2017, and 2018 has been automatically transferred over to the 2019 PAR as well. Please be sure to review the 2019 PAR for completeness and update accordingly. If documents from 2015 are still showing, you may delete it.

Please remember to remove all protected health information (PHI) from documents uploaded in the SAR/PAR. Please check all quality studies, cancer conference grids, or any other documents that may include PHI. For questions regarding PHI or HIPAA compliance, please communicate with your facility’s privacy officer.

For CoC or accreditation questions, please use the CoC contact form.

For questions about the CoC Standards, please review and submit questions to the CAnswer Forum.

We appreciate your cancer program’s commitment to high-quality cancer care and participation in the CoC Accreditation Program!
