Cancer Reporting – Hospital

Missouri Hospital Directory


Please refer to Chapter 2 of the MCR Abstract Code Manual regarding casefinding and reportability requirements. Review of the facility Medical Record Disease Index (MRDI) is essential to accomplish complete cancer casefinding. The SEER casefinding tool is provided to assist you in determining what codes to include in your facility’s MRDI. MCR recommends that you include codes on the Comprehensive section of the list and add as many codes from the Supplemental section as prove useful at your facility.

Hospitals with more than 50 cases annually must submit electronically. To facilitate reporting by hospitals with 50-150 cases annually, The MCR offers a free software, WebPlus, that was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hospitals with 50 or fewer cases annually may still submit copies of charts via WebPlus or in special circumstances by fax.
