CCR Perform Casefinding Audit

A casefinding audit is a review and evaluation of a data source's ability to identify and transmit eligible, reportable neoplasms to the central cancer registry (CCR). It involves a review of the most likely sources of cases: disease indices, pathology reports (including surgical, bone marrow, autopsy, and cytology), radiation therapy logs, surgical logs, and other sources to identify cancer cases that should have been reported to the central cancer registry, and compare these cases to those that were reported.

The use case is the business process of a cancer registry and its interaction with internal actors (those who perform the process) and external actors (recipients of the process).
