4 WMHS Cancer Experience 2007 The Cancer Registry data of the Western Maryland Health System Cancer Program represents the compilation of cancer data from the Memorial Hospital & Medical Center and Braddock Hospital. Seven hundred sixty cases of cancer were accessioned for These cases were diagnosed and/or treated at WMHS. 737 cases are analytic, initially diagnosed and/or treated at WMHS in Twenty-three patients received their entire first course of treatment elsewhere and received subsequent treatment at Western Maryland Health System. The WMHS Cancer Program is committed to serving the residents of the tri-state region. 60.3% of the cases were Allegany County, Maryland residents, 16.3% were Mineral County, West Virginia residents, 11.8% were Garrett County, Maryland residents; 3.7% were Bedford County, Pennsylvania residents; 3.4% were Hampshire County, West Virginia residents; 1.6% were Somerset County, Pennsylvania residents.

6 WMHS Cancer Conference 2008 Cancer Conference, a multidisciplinary consultive forum for the medical staff and allied health professions to promote excellence in cancer care, is held weekly and teleconferenced between Memorial and Braddock Hospitals using video/teleconferencing equipment provided through a grant from the Maryland Cigarette Restitution Fund. Fifty conferences were held with an average attendance of 38. Physicians are able to present from either location with Pathology and Radiology presented from Braddock. One hundred fifty-four cases representing 33 different primary sites were discussed. All cases presented were prospective. WMHS Cancer Registry A cancer diagnosis touches one out three individuals in this country. More people than ever are winning the battle against the disease, thanks to research and continuing advances in medical technology. Information is one of the strongest allies in the fight. The Western Maryland Health System Cancer Registry is an important component of the Cancer Program designed to collect, manage, and analyze information on persons diagnosed with a malignant disease. This information is useful to WMHS for evaluating the quality of patient care, developing educational programs for health professionals and the community and planning future healthcare needs. The Reference Date for the shared cancer registry database of Memorial and Braddock Hospitals is 1/1/ ,534 cases have been entered into the Cancer Registry database as of 12/31/2007. Numerous patients receive part of their initial course of treatment at each hospital and the shared database insures that cases are counted appropriately Seven hundred thirty-seven analytic and 23 non-analytic cancer patients were first cared for at WMHS in The registry is required to follow all living cases annually. The 2007 successful follow-up rate since the reference date of 1/1/1997 is 92.8% following 3,689 cases. For the last 5 years, the successful follow-up rate is 94%. To insures inclusion of data from the Western Maryland Heath System service area in national statistics, following an extensive editing process, Registry data is submitted to the National Cancer Data Base, as required for all Commission on Cancer programs. The WMHS Cancer Registry was recognized by the CoC for submitting data with no data quality errors in the data for years Data is submitted quarterly to the Maryland Cancer Registry. Submitting data to these organizations allows WMHS to compare themselves to other health care organizations.

7 The registry staff includes Chris Roby, CTR, Cancer Registry Coordinator; Donna Huff, CTR; and Tammy Shaffer. They are members of the National Cancer Registry Association (NCRA) Site Distribution Private Referral Cases Submitted to the Maryland Cancer Registry For the Pathology Department at Western Maryland Health System Site Total Garrett PVH Hampshire Other Oral Cavity Tonsil Stomach Small Intestine Colon Rectum Hematopoietic Skin Lung Soft Tissue Breast Cervix Uteri Corpus Uteri Prostate Testis Bladder Lymph Nodes Thyroid Unknown Total The freestanding laboratory at WMHS is required by Maryland law to report all cancers diagnosed as private referrals to the Maryland Cancer Registry. One hundred thirtyeight cases that did not meet the criteria to be included with the WMHS data were reported. Prostate was the most frequently diagnosed primary site, followed by melanoma of the skin, breast and bladder.

8 National Cancer Data Base Review Background: The National Quality Forum (NQF) brought public and private payers together with consumers, researchers, and clinicians to broaden consensus on performance measures for breast and colorectal cancer. The Commission on Cancer has been actively engaged in this process. The CoC has instituted a facility feedback mechanism through this reporting venue, the electronic Quality Improvement Packet (e-quip) to promote awareness of the importance of charting and coding accuracy in line with evidence based practice guidelines. In light of the national movement towards Pay for Performance (P4P), these reports provide CoC-Approved programs with the ability to examine program-specific colorectal cancer care practices. e-quip for Breast, Colon, & Rectal Cancers Western Maryland Health System Primary Site Breast Radiation therapy is administered within 1 year (365 days) of diagnosis for women under age 70 receiving breast conserving surgery for breast cancer. Combination chemotherapy is considered or administered within 4 months (120 days) of diagnosis for women under 70 with AJCC T1c N0 M0, or Stage II or III ERA and PRA negative breast cancer. Tamoxifen or third generation aromatase inhibitor is considered or administered within 1 year (365 days) of diagnosis for women with AJCC T1c N0 M0, or Stage II or III ERA and/or PRA positive breast cancer. Colon Adjuvant chemotherapy is considered or administered within 4 months (120 days) of diagnosis for patients under the age of 80 with AJCC Stage III (lymph node positive) colon cancer. Rectum Radiation therapy is considered or administered within 6 months (180 days) of diagnosis for patients under the age of 80 of with clinical or pathologic AJCC T4N0M0 or Stage III receiving surgical resection for rectal cancer. Estimated Performance Rate 89.2% 92.6% 88.3% 86.7% 100% All cases (10) that did not meet the inclusion criteria were reviewed. The most frequent reason for not being included was that the patient or patient s family refused treatment. The reason for non-compliance with evidence based treatment guidelines was documented in all ten cases and resubmitted to the National Cancer Database on 6/2/2008.
