Subject: eMaRC Plus, Web Plus, XMLExchange Plus, and CRS Plus Training Opportunity, May 30, 2020, Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Lake Buena Vista, FL (Pre-NCRA Annual Conference)
Below please find information regarding an upcoming training opportunity for eMaRC Plus, Web Plus, XMLExchange Plus, and CRS Plus, taking place on May 30, 2020, at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Lake Buena Vista, FL (Pre-NCRA Annual Conference). A pre-conference workshop for Registry Plus will be held on May 30, 2020, in conjunction with the 2020 NCRA Annual Conference. The intended audience is current and future users of eMaRC Plus, Web Plus, XMLExchange Plus, and CRS Plus. The full training on Saturday will run 8:00 am to 5:30 pm with a break midday when participants will be on their own for lunch. Participants can attend the morning session on eMaRC Plus OR the afternoon session covering Web Plus, XMLExchange Plus, and CRS Plus OR both sessions for the full day. Participants do not have to attend both morning and afternoon sessions. Registration is separate for each session. For descriptions of the purpose and functions of these Registry Plus programs, visit the Registry Plus website https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/npcr/tools/registryplus/index.htm The attached PDF file describing the training may also be helpful as you consider the upcoming training opportunity.
Workshop A: eMaRC Plus
In the eMaRC Plus half-day workshop, participants will review different ways states use/process pathology data in the cancer registry (i.e. only processing cases in eMaRC Plus that aren't in CRS Plus; process only specific types of cancer cases; etc.) and receive training on HL7 message structure of pathology reports (NAACCR Volume V). Additionally, Registry Plus team members will provide workshop participants with guidance on and demonstrate multiple methods to export records to make the best use of Electronic Health Reports (HER) physician reporting in the cancer registry. Examples include: only processing cases in eMaRC Plus that are not in CRS Plus; process only specific types of cancer cases; process cases from only certain providers; process cases likely to have treatment data not otherwise reported. The participants should be familiar with Windows computing environment and have basic knowledge of HL7 and CDA files.
