The Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center (MCR-ARC) is located on the fourth floor of Clark Hall on the campus of the University of Missouri - Columbia and housed within the Department of Health Management and Informatics in the School of Medicine. The MCR-ARC is a collaborative partnership between the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and the University of Missouri. Since 1995, the MCR-ARC has received financial support from the National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
About our website
The Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center's website was created to assist the various entities who are required by statutes and regulations (RSMo 192.650
and 19 CSR 70-21.010
) to submit cancer information to the state central cancer registry.
Some of the contents include:
- the MCR-ARC Abstract Code Manual for hospitals
abstracting resources for hospital registrars, such as required surgery codes, Missouri county codes, etc.
reporting forms for long-term care facilities and other non-hospital facilities
links to sites frequently utilized by cancer registrars
information about and links to the Missouri state cancer-reporting legislation
- HIPAA information
For persons less familiar with MCR-ARC or new to cancer reporting, we’ve included a web site search tool located on the upper left corner of all pages. This search (by default) is limited to the contents of the MCR-ARC website.
This project was supported in part by a cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) (#U58/DP003924-02) and a Surveillance Contract between DHSS and the University of Missouri.
