One of the important sections of Kyiv City Clinical Oncology Center (KCCOC) is organizational and methodological work, which is provided by the staff of the organizational-methodical department.
Up to 1990 the organizational-methodical department was headed by K.I. Nazarenko and N.D. Prokopenko, later the department was headed by O.T. Oleksiyenko from 1990–1993, V.S. Frolov in 1993–1994, T.S. Zavadskaya in 1994– 1995, from 01.03.1995 and till 01.06.2016 Oleksandr Volodymyrovych Voitko occupied the position of Deputy Chief Physician for organizational and methodological work. In June 2016, O.V. Voitko was transferred to the post of deputy chief doctor on questions of quality assurance of medical aid, and organizational-methodical department was headed by Ratova Valentyna Valerievna.
From 1990 till now the organizationalmethodical department carries out work on preparation, implementation, maintenance of the efficiency of cancer-registers system and its integration into other information systems.
The work of the cancer-register of Kiev was organised according to the order № 208 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine of December 30, 1992 “On Measures for the Further Improvement and Development of Cancer Assistance to the Population” and complying with the requirements of the policy documents (Order No 10 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine of January 22, 1996 “On the Establishment of the National Cancer Registry of Ukraine”). Besides, KCCOC was the first to adopt a system of work implying the same employees of the medical statistics office, headed by Oksana Shurigina, work with electronic information and information on paper carriers.
In 1996, two closely interconnected systems of the “Hospital” and “Population” cancer registers, each of which performs its functions and complements one another, were successfully developed and implemented in the daily activities of KCCOC. Population Cancer Register provides a database of more than 160 thousand cancer patients in Kyiv, regardless of the place where the diagnosis or treatment is performed, and the hospital registry is a database of more than 100 thousand cancer patients treated in KCCOC, which fully reflects the treatment history of each patient.
