For some further background, we presently abstract all of our hospital’s cases concurrently, with about 10% being completed within a month of date of first contact.
I realize that “concurrent” may differ from one person or organization to another. For us, that means any time we are handling a suspense case (incoming casefinding documentation or staging forms, entering treatment information from preceding month’s new start lists for systemic or radiation treatment, preparing tumor board summaries, generating survivorship forms, etc), the text and coding is updated to reflect all information currently available. Thus at completion 4-6 months out, there is little to be added and often it is more of a data quality check.
