Information for Providers
Cancer is designated as a reportable disease in the state of Utah (Cancer Reporting Rule, R384-100).
Reporting Cancer Cases to the Utah Cancer Registry
Providers who diagnose and/or treat reportable conditions should report each case to Utah Cancer Registry. Utah Cancer Registry is working toward 100% electronic reporting. We will work with each provider group to determine the best reporting mechanism. Contact the Utah Cancer Registry at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone
When Utah Cancer Registry receives information about a case from a pathology report or death certificate, the registry often contacts the listed physician to request additional information.
What to report
Detailed information about which conditions are reportable is available on the reportable conditions. Reports can be selected using reportable ICD-10-CM codes or cancer-related procedure codes. Each report should include the following data items:
- facility, provider, and patient identifiers,
- dates, methods, and results of cancer-directed screening and diagnostic procedures provided under their care,
- dates and methods of treatment provided under their care,
- follow-up data such as date of last contact and disease status.
How to Report Cancer Cases
Approved methods of reporting:
- University of Utah Box
- Other secure file exchange methods
Until electronic reporting is implemented, providers can submit cancer case reports using the appropriate form below.Urology, dermatology, and hematology-oncology have forms that are specific to those specialties:
- Urologists: Report a Cancer Case Form
- Dermatologists: Report a Cancer Case Form
- Hematologists-Oncologists: Report a Cancer Case Form
All other providers can use the General Report Form.
The report forms are editable pdfs that can be completed on the computer then printed or printed then filled-out by hand. The completed forms should then be returned to Utah Cancer Registry.
If you have any additional questions, or to set up reporting, please contact Utah Cancer Registry at email@example.com, or telephone
Electronic Reporting through Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program
Health care providers can opt to report their cases electronically through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program, also known as Promoting Interoperability or Meaningful Use.
This program provides incentives for health care providers to use an EHR to document their patient care and requires that providers meet specific measures to receive the incentives.
Cancer case reporting is one of the measures providers can use to receive the incentives. Utah cancer Registry accepts electronic cancer reporting from eligible providers.
