Mountain Cancer Data Systems (RMCDS) was established in 1968 as a department
of the University of Utah School of Medicine (a non-profit state university)
to serve the needs of member tumor registries from several states. It is
supported solely by the member registries, which include both individual
hospital registries and state/regional registries.
Currently RMCDS services twenty-three state or regional registries which in turn service hundreds of individual hospitals. Over 450 hospitals nationwide are automated using the RMCDS hospital system. Rocky Mountain Cancer Data Systems (RMCDS) is a non-profit organization that has specialized in computerized tumor registries for over 20 years. We have developed software packages for Central (State) Registries, Regional Registries, and Hospital Registries. The software is designed to run in either single user mode or in multi-user mode (more than one individual working on the data base at the same time.)
