CHAMPS Oncology – More Than Cancer Registry Staffing

CHAMPS Oncology – More Than Registry Staffing

Mon, Jun 15, 2015  -  Comments (0)  -   Posted by Gale Zimmer

As a new member of the CHAMPS Oncology team, I am often asked about my new organization and what makes us different. Depending on my audience, my answer may vary. I give a long, more detailed answer to someone who’s never heard of the cancer registry and then discuss our differential – how our services extend beyond cancer registry staffing. When talking to someone who’s been working in the industry for years, I jump right to the full-service solutions that make CHAMPS unique. Here’s what I mean.

The long answer…

Cancer registrars are cancer information specialists that capture a complete history, diagnosis, treatment and health status for every cancer patient in the United States. The data they gather provides essential information to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research, as well as improve cancer prevention and screening programs. Our registrars work closely with physicians, administrators, researchers and healthcare planners to:

  • Provide support for cancer program development.
  • Ensure compliance with national and state reporting standards.
  • Serve as a valuable resource for cancer information with the ultimate goal of preventing and controlling cancer.

The short answer (our differential)…

CHAMPS Oncology’s cancer information specialists partner with clients nationwide to develop solutions that go beyond registry staffing and include a unique approach to meeting individual cancer program's needs. We ensure our staff receives the most up-to-date education and training in the industry; attends national meetings with their peers; and has their work closely monitored to ensure it is consistent and directly in line with cancer coding guidelines.

The bottom line is, when a client works with CHAMPS Oncology they receive more than registry staffing services. They are provided with a cancer registry solution that includes a CHAMPS staff member becoming part of their team.
