Gyerman Quoted in For The Record Article

The April 9, 2011, issue of For The Record features the article Cancer Registrars Tackle Tough Assignments, which quotes Ilona Gyerman, director of CHAMPS Oncology’s quality & informatics division.

One topic covered in the article is how registrars can maintain efficiency amidst frequent changes in the registry and healthcare as a whole.

Gyerman weighed in with her advice for maintaining efficiency, saying, “There are always new things that come up, new reporting that must be done, so it’s important to remain as ahead of schedule as you can. Also, identify cases that need further treatment and check on them regularly. We always want a complete and accurate picture of the treatment history.”

The For the Record article also covers a brief history of the cancer registry, the registrar’s role in cancer care and challenges registrars face.
