Introduction

The Making Electronic Data More Available for Research and Public Health (MedMorph) project seeks to advance public health and patient-centered outcomes by using emerging health data and exchange standards, such as Health Level 7 (HL7®) Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) and Clinical Quality Language (CQL), to develop and implement an interoperable solution enabling access to clinical data. More information about the MedMorph project can be found on the [MedMorph Reference Architecture (RA) Implementation Guide (IG)](http://hl7.org/fhir/us/medmorph/2022Jan/index.html).

The MedMorph Central Cancer Registry Reporting Content IG specifies how the MedMorph RA IG is leveraged to enable health care organizations to implement Central Cancer Reporting Use Cases. This standard facilitates automated, standardized exchange of cancer surveillance data from ambulatory healthcare provider EHR systems to central cancer registries. The goal of this IG is to leverage existing technology frameworks and standards (e.g., minimal Common Oncology Data Elements (mCODE)), facilitate automated electronic collection and exchange, reduce reporting burden on data providers, augment secure transfers, and enhance data completeness, timeliness, and accuracy of cancer surveillance data using modern IT standards.
