RQRS Update

Files/cases submitted to RQRS are processing in both v18 and v16. In order to ensure all cases that were originally submitted in v16 are processed correctly in v18, all 2018 data items including AJCC 8th Edition TNM and Stage groups, radiation data items if applicable, and cancer status will need to be updated and the cases resubmitted. Once these data items are updated in the vendor software and resubmitted to RQRS, the dashboards, alerts, and case list will update. Please review the RQRS User Guide for the RQRS Minimum EPR Calculation Fields required to run the measure algorithms.
