The Bi-National Colorectal Cancer Audit (BCCA) is a CSSANZ initiative used for clinical audit of the surgical practices of Australian and New Zealand surgeons for the purpose of quality assurance as well as research. First established in 2007 the database went online in 2013, making it more accessible, more useful and easier than ever before. The audit is applicable to all surgeons who see patients with a diagnosis of colorectal cancer.
Some of the inbuilt features include:
Reminders for incomplete data.
In built reporting – outcomes, morbidity, mortality, comparisons and inpatient reports
Ability to upload existing data sources
Multiple access levels – e.g. consultant and site manager access
Interested surgeons should contact BCCA Staff (contact details below) to arrange registration and hospital ethics.

BCCA Data Extraction
BCCA users can download their own raw data to Excel anytime securely and simply. This feature is accessible via the online interface. Simply log in, go to the Data tab, and hit Data Extract. The data that users can access is defined by their role in BCCA. If a user is logged in as a Surgeon their can download all of their own data, if the user is logged in as a Site Manager they can access all of their site’s data.This removes any risk in managing data requests and related transfer of such information and provides a safe and reliable environment for BCCA users to access their data.
