Resumo


Hospital-based cancer registries (HBCR) collaborate to cancer research in the following areas: prevention, screening, treatment, survival, and palliation. In order to support these research efforts, the National Cancer Institute of Brazil (INCA) has developed a complete HBCR system that gathers cancer hospital registry information and consolidates data into a central cancer database. The first step of this system is done in a local server-based system distributed nationwide – SisRHC system. The cancer registries of each participating hospital enter all cancer cases with patient information and tumor characteristics. Once all information of a given year is validated, the HBCR coordinator transmits data to a centralized database – IRHC system. The junction of these two systems is called RHC Brasil and is offered by the Brazilian Health Ministry/INCA free of charge. Due to the use of these systems information is standardized assuring comparability and the high quality of information.
