|Theresa Gerboc, CTR|
Quality Control Specialist, CHAMPS Oncology
Theresa Gerboc, CTR, is the quality control specialist for CHAMPS Oncology. In this role, she is responsible for reviewing registry data for quality assurance. She ensures client data is timely, accurate, complete and compliant with the most recent cancer coding guidelines.
With more than 30 years of experience in the cancer registry industry, Gerboc brings unique expertise to CHAMPS. She has previously worked as a follow-up specialist, abstractor, mentor, manager and as a software representative.
She is a member of the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) and the Pennsylvania Cancer Registrars Association (PACR). She presented on defensive abstracting in 2010 to NCRA as well as multiple state associations. Gerboc also spoke at PACR's 2016 Annual Meeting on this topic. PACR, which Gerboc has been an active member for 30 years, believes defensive abstracting is an important subject to revisit due to the number of new registrars joining the cancer registry profession.
She has also been invited to present on cancer registry abstracting at a New York State regional meeting in Rochester, New York later this year. Her article titled “Defensive Abstracting Makes Sense” was published in the Advance for Health Information Specialists magazine.

- Cancer Registry Abstracting
- Cancer Registry Data Reports
