Appendix B: Casefinding Tracking Log Appendix B: Physician Practice Casefinding Tracking Log Instructions for completing the Physician Practice Tracking Log General Instructions: Record all cases identified through reports/patient logs included in the casefinding process. This includes reportable and non-reportable cases. If a patient has two or more independent cases of cancer, the patient will need to be entered multiple times, once for each primary. If this tumor for the patient has already been reported, you do not need to enter the information again on the form. You may use the comments section to record additional notes if necessary. You may also update the "Last Date Record Reviewed.” Medical Record # If available, enter the patient’s physician office medical record number. Last Name Enter the patient's last name. First Name Enter the patient's first name. Date of Birth Enter the patient's date of birth. ICD-9-CM Code If available, enter the ICD-9-CM code. Type of Cancer/Primary Site Enter the site (organ, tissue, etc.) of the body where the tumor originated. Date of Diagnosis Enter the date a medical practitioner first stated this patient has a reportable cancer or condition. Date of First Visit Enter the date the patient was first seen at this office with this reportable cancer.

Examples include: Seen at ____ Hospital. Not a reportable condition PIN III, Case already reported, Waiting on upcoming visit for final diagnosis, etc. Enter additional information here that will assist the reporter in future casefinding efforts.

For example, the information in the record was incomplete and additional information from the physician or information from a future visit is needed. Enter the North Carolina hospital name if it is documented that the patient was seen at that North Carolina hospital for the management of this cancer. Leave blank if the patient was not seen at a North Carolina hospital (or it is unknown) for the management of this cancer. This case needs to be reported. Enter the visit date (inpatient or outpatient) at that hospital for the diagnosis or treatment of this cancer. Leave blank if the patient was not seen at a NC hospital (or it is unknown) for the management of this cancer.
