NH Cancer Statistics
NH cancer statistics are based on registry data provided by our hospitals and non-hospital facilities.
Web-based services for file uploading and rapid case reporting are available to reporting facilities. The NHSCR uses WebPlus to provide secure transmission of confidential information. A Windows XP or Windows 2000 computer is required. A user ID and password are required to access the web site. Hospital staff should contact us to get a user ID and password.
Information for physicians, freestanding oncology clinics, path labs, and other non-hospital facilities can be found under Reporting for Non-Hospital.
Please contact us if you would like more information on reporting requirements.
Each year, the NHSCR organizes training events for NH hospital registrars, including the NAACCR webinar series hosted by local hospitals. The NHSCR staff members are available by phone or email to answer individual questions about reporting requirements and practical issues. Registrars should also check regional and national organizations for other training opportunities. Some useful links are provided here.
NHCSR subscribes to the NAACCR Cancer Registry & Surveillance webinar series so that NH hospital registrars may participate. We encourage NH hospital registrars to host these events. If interested, please contact us.
