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 firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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 email@example.com
