The XML Workgroup has started discussing proposing new levels of data in the NAACCR XML hierarchy. The current levels are NaaccrData, Patient, Tumor. We want to gather use cases for the suggested new levels to support a proposal.
The use cases could be for central and/or hospital registries, for research files, etc. The use case should have a need to transmit or store data in NAACCR XML format. Like you might store extra data in registry software database tables but never need to transmit it in XML - that data wouldn't be a good candidate for an extra level.
These are the new levels we've discussed: Address (parent element: Patient)Treatment (parent element: Tumor)Physicians (parent element: probably Tumor)
Please comment if you have any suggestions of use cases or other new levels to consider!
Certainly! Here are some potential use cases and considerations for the suggested new levels in the NAACCR XML hierarchy:
Address (parent element: Patient):
Treatment (parent element: Tumor):
Physicians (parent element: probably Tumor):
Genetic Information (parent element: Tumor or Patient):
Clinical Trials (parent element: Patient or Tumor):
Survivorship Data (parent element: Patient):
These use cases aim to showcase scenarios where additional levels could enhance the granularity and applicability of the NAACCR XML format for diverse registry and research purposes.
These are excellent examples Paul and match what I was thinking also, thank you.
As far as prioritizing:
We should discuss next steps on an upcoming call.
