  • Certification of Completeness:
    FCDS and the Florida Department of Health have placed a greater emphasis on late reporting by our hospitals. We have reminded all of our facilities about the need for timely reporting and made efforts to work with delinquent facilities to gather status and plans for data year completion.

    In order for FCDS to have a better view of hospital completeness, we are implementing a Certification of Completeness that will require each hospital reporting facility to certify, in IDEA, that they have completed their current data year reporting. The system will record the date of completion for reference and can provide a reflection of historical performance relative to on-time reporting.

    Each hospital is required to certify their completeness by logging into the IDEA system, choosing Admissions Report /Certify Completeness under the Reports/Inquiry tab and following the steps to certify completeness.

    The process is simple and straight forward but I have created a short tutorial on how this is done. The tutorial can be viewed by clicking on the following link: Recording of Demo

    We thank you for your support and we will be sending out reminders about the Certification of Completeness requirement as we get closer to our annual 6/30 deadline. We will also be creating a pop-up reminder in IDEA at sign-in for those facilities that have not certified after deadline.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. Thank you.

  • FCDS Follow-Up System module available in FCDS IDEA:
    FCDS is pleased to announce the availability of our new FCDS Follow-Up System module in FCDS IDEA. This module was designed specifically for CoC-Accredited Cancer Programs and other end-results registries serving the state of Florida that are responsible for pursuing and documenting annual follow-up of their patients and for registries that have difficulty finding complete first course of treatment information in their hospital medical records.

    Cancer patients are often referred to private practice physicians and/or free-standing cancer treatment centers for completion of first course of therapy following surgery at a hospital. This additional treatment information is often not available to the registrar at the time of case abstraction. However, FCDS receives cancer data from hundreds of reporting sources each year. These data are summarized and merged into a single "best record" or "consolidated record" that is housed at the state cancer registry, FCDS.

    Until recently FCDS did not have the ability or permission to share back information on "in common" cases when cancer care and follow-up responsibilities are shared among reporting facilities. This resulted in CoC-Accredited Cancer Programs spending time contacting local medical oncology practices and/or treatment centers to find out if the patient was referred to the practice/center to complete first course of treatment. We are confident that the new FCDS Follow-Up System will help registrars in their follow-up efforts as well as assisting registrars in saving time investigating and contacting physicians and treatment centers to gather these data to meet CoC-Accreditation Standards.

    Please take a few moments to view the 30-minute instructional video and slides on the new FCDS Follow-Up System and join us in celebrating a new milestone in statewide collaboration and sharing back data and information to care providers to improve cancer care in the state of Florida.

    Disease Index Training

    Slides

    Handouts

    These web modules are slides + narration of FCDS training and education modules held at FCDS Annual Meetings or Abstractor training seminars. Computer requirements:

  • You should have a way to hear sound from your computer (internal/external speakers.)
  • The Flash plugin is required. It is a way of displaying the recorded slides and is automatically downloaded and installed if you don't have it on your computer (most internet websites with moving ads install it for you as well.)
  • Your screen resolution should be 800 by 600 pixels or higher. For Microsoft Windows, see Start-Settings-Control Panel-Display, click the Settings tab, and check the Screen Area setting. Higher values let you see more screen area, but makes letters smaller.
  • A relatively fast internet connection is recommended. Office type internet connections will download the files much faster than home/dial-up connections.
