NCRA to Have an Important Presence on Virtual OVAC Hill Day

While COVID-19 has shut down lots of things, it will not stop NCRA from educating Congress about the value of increased funding for federal cancer programs. With the help of several NCRA members, the One Voice Against Cancer (OVAC) coalition will be participating in a grassroots Virtual Lobby Day on Tuesday, May 19. Instead of flying to DC, NCRA representatives will be dialing into Capitol Hill for pre-scheduled meetings via conference call.

Special thanks to Curry Chapman, CTR (Alabama); Sara Biese, RHIT, CTR (Wisconsin); and Karen Mason, MSc, RN, CTR (Florida) who will be participating. These NCRA members live in states where one of their Senators has a key role in writing the budget for the CDC and NIH.
Among OVAC's specific funding asks of Congress is to increase CDC funding for the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) to support real-time data reporting.

Small effort- Big gain: Thinking about our access to Real World Data (RWD) and COVID-19. Let's take the initiative to collect the data about pts we're tracking who have the virus. Create a *structured field* a/k/a UDF for a dx with the confirmed or presumed virus. Sure, we'd absolutely put it in a text field. But think about the rich insights structured tracking will yield! We can do our part in this.
I know everyone is busy with family and friends planning for arrangements to work around this virus. If you have not cast your NCRA votes please make time. If you are in the northeast, we want to be well represented when the votes are counted. Make your voice heard! Thanks and take care one and all.
