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

NCDB Call for Data Deadline Extended

The 2020 National Cancer Database (NCDB) Call for Data was originally scheduled to be conducted from January 1 through May 31, 2020. We understand many hospital registrars may be experiencing work disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related adjustments being made by hospitals across the country. Due to the many issues registrars are experiencing, the 2020 Call For Data window will be extended to August 31, 2020 (11:59 pm CST) for submissions and corrections to allow programs to successfully meet the Commission on Cancer (CoC) Standards 5.5 and 5.6 requirements.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all registrars, hospital workers and patients during these times, and we will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds.
