California Cancer Reporting and Epidemiologic Surveillance (CalCARES)
The California Cancer Reporting and Epidemiologic Surveillance (CalCARES) is the state mandated population-based cancer surveillance system. Since 2012, the California Cancer Reporting and Epidemiologic Surveillance (CalCARES) Program within the Institute for Population Health Improvement (IPHI), has partnered with the California Department of Public Health to manage day-to-day operations of the CalCARES.
The CalCARES is a coordinated effort by the California Department of Public Health’s Chronic Disease Surveillance and Research Branch (CDSRB), the Institute for Population Health Improvement (IPHI), regional cancer registries, health care providers, cancer registrars, and cancer researchers throughout California and the nation.
The California Cancer Reporting and Epidemiologic Surveillance is California's statewide population-based cancer surveillance system. The CalCARES collects information about all cancers diagnosed in California (except basal and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin and carcinoma in situ of the cervix).
