INFORMATION FOR REPORTING FACILITIES AND SOFTWARE VENDORS
Effective immediately, the Georgia Center for Cancer Statistics (GCCS) will accept data submitted in the NAACCR Version 23 format. We have given cancer registry software vendors a state-specific NAACCR 23A EDITS metafile, and the edit set is named “GA_V23A Hospital Edit Set”. You will need to run these edits before submitting Version 23 data to GCCS.
Until further notice, we will accept diagnosis year 2022 and earlier cases in either the NAACCR Version 22 or Version 23 format. All cases diagnosed 01/01/2023 and later must be submitted in NAACCR Version 23.
We will run the GA_V22B Hospital Edit Set on data submitted to us in the Version 22 format. We will run the GA_V23A Hospital Edit Set on data submitted to us in the Version 23 format. We recommend that you send an edit report with your submission. If you do not include an edit report or a statement that you have run Georgia Hospital Edits and attempted to clear all edit errors, any errors generated will be counted.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
