Abstract

Ten members of NAACCR were interviewed about their perceptions of the unresolved practical and policy issues related to the adoption of HL7 by central cancer registries. Eight groups of issues emerged and are described. The authors conclude that when weighing the appropriateness of HL7 application to cancer registries, the registries must go beyond the technical aspects of translation and implementation and consider the practical, administrative, and managerial issues related to its successful implementation. They recommend that NAACCR continue to study these issues with the goal of formulating a strategic plan for the use of HL7 in cancer registry systems.
