The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), located in Seattle, Washington, is part of a dynamic collaboration among three organizations known nationally and internationally for their patient care and research: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington, and Seattle Children's. Over the past 25 years, these institutions have worked together to support their mission of adult and pediatric oncology patient care services, research and education.
Under general supervision, this position identifies all analytic and nonanalytic cancer cases according to American College of Surgeons (ACoS) Commission on Cancer (CoC) standards. They assign International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) codes, collaborative staging and AJCC TNM stages using the American Joint Committee on Cancer, Manual for Staging of Cancer, and Seventh Edition to all reportable cancer cases. They will serve as an information resource for ICD-O coding, staging and abstracting to assure quality data and correct end results and assist in patient follow-ups.
