Access and Release of Cancer Registry Information

Cancer registry information may only be used for statistical, scientific, medical research and public health purposes.  The Department of Health may release confidential registry information for research purposes only after the research project has been reviewed and approved by an institutional review board and a confidentiality agreement is negotiated.  In order to maintain confidentiality of the information, cancer diagnosis or treatment facilities may require contractors to sign an agreement of confidentiality regarding access and release of cancer data and prepare, administer, and maintain confidentiality oaths as needed.
