The Commission on Cancer (CoC) National Cancer Database (NCDB) is pleased to announce that the Rapid Cancer Reporting System (RCRS) will go live Monday, September 28, 2020.

In preparation for the go live, you will receive two emails on Monday, September 28, 2020 from our system vendor IQVIA labeled as ACS Tech Support from email address ACSTechSupport@iqvia.com:

  1. The first email (subject: ACS Data Quality Platform-Account User) will provide your login information, including your User ID, URL to access RCRS and login instructions.
  2. The second email (subject: ACS Data Quality Platform-Password Reset) will provide a temporary Password, which you will be prompted to change in order to log in to the system.

Please “whitelist” the email address above as this will not be coming from a recognized source. If you do not see these two emails in your inbox by end of day Monday, review your spam/junk email folder.
