The Victorian Cancer Registry was established in 1939.  This Registry is the longest running comprehensive cancer registry in Australia and among the oldest continuously operating registries in the world. Currently, about 240 hospitals and 30 pathology laboratories notify the Registry of cancer cases. The Registry folks can work with researchers to recruit patients with cancer for research projects. They support research which fosters improvements and innovations in cancer prevention, clinical practice and cancer service delivery.

The COTA database is sourced from electronic health records (EHR) of contributing academic, for-profit, and community oncologist provider sites and hospital systems. COTA contains detailed demographic, diagnostic, molecular and genomic testing, treatment, and outcome data. As of June 2020, COTA’s database is a geographically and genetically diverse set, comprised of rich longitudinal patient records collected from >40 unique locations across North America.

There is a growing interest among epidemiologists to investigate genetic risk factors for disease, alongside other risk factors. We present a case study that demonstrates how B.R.I.D.G.E. TO DATA® (www.bridgetodata.org) supports gene-disease association studies by allowing searching for genetic databases, reviewing data elements, and comparing cohorts for pooling.

We may not have a booth at this year’s virtual meeting for ICPE, but you can always visit us at our website to request a demo, view a sample set, or communicate with our DGI Team.
