Mission and Goal

•   Mission...
     – The Technical Working Group (TWG) is chartered to ensure the quality,
        accuracy, completeness and timeliness of data collection and
        distribution of the Breast and Colon Cancer Family Registry (BC-CFR)
        data for research.

•   Goals...
     – Develop (or improve) processes to ensure quality, accuracy, completeness
       and timeliness of data submissions to Informatics Support Center (ISC) by
       Breast and Colon Cancer Family Registries (BC-CFR)
     – Develop (or improve) processes to ensure quality, accuracy, completeness
       and timeliness of data that is distributed by Informatics Support Center
       (ISC) in response to researcher requests
     – Develop mechanisms to check consistency of data between ISC and BC-
       CFRs with future goal of currentness of data at the ISC
     – Facilitate creation of new data dictionaries/modules to handle more data
       types in response to emerging needs of community
     – Update existing data dictionaries to ensure accuracy, coverage and
       descriptiveness in response to community request
     – Ensure integration of existing data standards where possible and
       appropriate (e.g., terminologies/vocabularies)

               – Developers develop and format their proposal using
Development      TWG proposal templates
               – Presented to relevant WGs (e.g., Biospecimen WG)

               – Proposal is submitted to TWG for review via email

Inter-X Checks
Improving Data Quality

• For new proposals edit checks are included

• For old/legacy data dictionaries edit checks are
  added retroactively in coordination with relevant
  BCCFR WGs:
   – Completed:
      • Breast Epi Baseline Edit Checks
      • Colon Epi Baseline Edit Checks - Bowel screening and
        health

   – Ongoing:
      • Colon Epi Baseline Edit Checks (e.g. Medications,
        Physical activity, Smoking)
Future Plan

• Improve/add edit checks to more modules
  such as
  – Family History
• Continue to develop proposals for data
  dictionaries such as:
  – Colon Epi Follow-up Module
  – Molecular Module
• Improve approval process such as:
  – Data Dictionary Development Proposal
