Aim: Achieving high quality cancer registration processes requires, a set of minimum defined data besides standardized. Determining the minimum set of data ensures that all the necessary data are collected in an integrated manner, and plays a role in the integrity of the data. The aim of this study was to determine the compatibility of data elements in laboratory information system of Hormozgan Pathology Centers with Minimum Data Set (MDS) in Demographic Cancer Registration Program (PBCR).
Methods: This descriptive study is a cross-sectional LIS research where data were compared in lab with the minimum data set. The data collection tool was a checklist containing 30 items in 3 sections including the general profile of the pathology lab, the pathology reports structure, and the pathological information system. Data analysis was done using descriptive statistics of SPSS20.
Results: All elements of patient identity information, information provider and data related to the acceptance date of the sample and type of sample, information elements of pathologic diagnosis, and the reporting date were available in all pathology software. All pathology LIS had a section on the history of the report, but only 44% of them had a dedicated section for diagnostic codes that users did not have information about or its use.
Conclusion: The LIS matching with the PBCR-specific MDS showed that all the necessary data are available in the LIS and should be reminded for their completion by the personnel of the pathology labs.
