Data Flow Diagram Legend
There are two actors: the registrar and the cancer registry (CR) software.
The process starts when the registrar decides to report cases to a registry, an agency, or a project. The registrar selects the registry, agency, or project to which the abstracts will be submitted.
The CR software selects abstracts that meet the criteria for reporting, runs validation checks on them, and creates a batch file of eligible abstracts.
If an electronic update of the database table is possible, the CR software transmits the batch file electronically. Otherwise, the registrar transmits it manually. The CR software then updates the data item "Date Case Report Exported" within the abstract.
If an electronic update of database table is possible, the CR software updates the AbstractTransmissionHistory table. Otherwise, the registrar updates the table manually and the process stops.
