The Florida Cancer Data System - IDEA


  • Starting July 1, FCDS will no longer be accepting NAACCR V14 data files (full cancer abstract submissions). V15 data files will be accepted starting July 1 but will be held unprocessed in a pending area until conversion is completed. The first 2 weeks of July will be used by FCDS for converting to NAACCR V15 and for system maintenance. There will be occasional downtime and service interruptions during this period. Look to the FCDS IDEA main page for status updates.
