Kaiser Permanente Interregional Cancer Statistics ProjectA Kaiser Permanente interregional cancer statistics report will be developed to include incidence and 5-year relative survival rates for breast, colorectal, and lung cancer. The development of new mortality measures will be explored, along with improved routine capture and reporting of these measures. Work will include a landscape review of current procedures and methods used by regional cancer committees to generate region-specific reports; generation of estimates of cancer-specific mortality and all-cause mortality; and assessment of interregional available death and cause of death data. Finally, sustainable reporting processes will be created to enhance the organization's ability to produce this report on an annual basis.
