Learn about the Victorian Cancer Registry, what it does and who it helps.

All Victorian pathology services and hospitals, both public and private, are required to notify the Victorian Cancer Registry of patients with cancers notifiable under the Improving Cancer Outcomes Act 2014.

The Victorian Cancer Registry Internet Portal (VCRIP) provides a secure electronic portal for the exchange of information between the Victorian Cancer Registry and authorised external stakeholders. To apply for access to VCRIP, you can either:

  • send an email to vcr@cancervic.org.au
  • ask a registered VCRIP Contact at the same organisation to submit a Request Access via VCRIP.

Pathology services submit data electronically to the Victorian Cancer Registry. For instruction on setting up the technology to enable this to occur, please contact us on vcr@cancervic.org.au

Health services including hospitals, day procedure centres and radiation oncology centres submitting data to the VCR should use these two reference guides to assist then in understanding how to submit a cancer registration to the Victorian Cancer Registry:

Cancer Registration User Guide

The User Guide provide details on what cancers are notifiable to the VCR, and outlines what information is required when registering the cancer and when it is to be submitted to the VCR. It contains a data dictionary with a reporting guide to assist clinical coders.
