You are at the center of ORIEN TCC to advance cancer treatments
During your regular visits and procedures with your doctors, the health information and any samples needed for TCC are collected.
Your personal identifying information is removed before your health information is shared. This protects your privacy while still helping researchers learn from your health information.
The power of TCC comes from how it brings together patients' health information into one searchable data system. This helps researchers and doctors find patients with similar conditions, which may guide clinical decision making and, as the database grows, may help find targeted treatment options.
This information is collected in a safe, efficient, and consistent process across all Member cancer centers to ensure quality data exchange while preserving patients' privacy and security.
In a manner that preserves each patient's privacy, molecular data is added to the database - this is information from complex tests on patients' tissue, blood and urine. This helps researchers find DNA changes (called gene mutations) associated with cancer.
Advances in cancer care mean researchers need to find patients with very specific traits for clinical trials. Find out how TCC can shorten the time needed to find these patients.
