Thank you to those who have posted their concerns on this topic. Our Cancer Registry is quite understaff and have been unable to move to a completely concurrent abstracting model however we’re making tiny strides…or at least we were. In this ever-changing landscape of healthcare the bottom line focuses on reimbursement and financials (outside of direct patient care). That being said, with the implementation of all of these changes prior to vendors being ready, will put this registry extremely behind. No matter how hard I try to explain why my department is extremely behind in abstracting, I can guarantee I will not be afforded the financial resources to dig out of this hole, because why should my organization pay for a problem that the Standard Setters created?
