In the United States
State cancer registries are the primary intended users of Registry Plus. CDC helps states set up the software and perform basic customization. Periodic software updates and problem solving are also provided to the extent of available resources. Our support is provided exclusively by telephone and e-mail. CDC is not staffed to provide on-site services, nor can we support hospitals, clinics, laboratories, or other private users.
Some components of Registry Plus—Abstract Plus, for example—are intended for redistribution after customization. A state central registry or other institution redistributing Registry Plus software should provide all support to end users and develop expertise in using the software among its own staff. Other users of Registry Plus software should contract, hire, or develop capability independently to understand and maintain the software applications. Contact your state central cancer registry.
Non-NPCR organizations should refer to the document Policy and Letter of Agreement for Use of CDC-Developed Software by Users External to the National Program of Cancer Registries. pdf icon[PDF-13KB]
Outside the United States
The Registry Plus Development group is funded primarily to support NPCR-funded central cancer registries, and cannot offer implementation support for the Registry Plus products to foreign countries. However, you are free to download the programs and implement them using other resources.
