The Bi-National Colorectal Cancer Audit (BCCA) is a CSSANZ initiative used for clinical audit of the surgical practices of Australian and New Zealand colorectal 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.
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 the Project Manager (contact details below) to arrange registration and hospital ethics.

BCCA Data Extraction
From 18 December 2015 BCCA users are now able to download their own raw data to Excel anytime securely and simply. This new 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.
More information about the output file can be found in the Data Extract Key which is located on the BCCA log in page https://bcca.registry.org.au/
