EuroCODE (European Computerised Oncological Data Exchange)
is a project launched in 1988 by the EORTC under the auspices of EC. It is a European wide oncology information network that currently serves a population of 500 physicians and staff across Europe and offers general communication facilities, such as electronic mail, and specific software for cancer clinical trials. It is supported by 8 National nodes, based at centres of excellence in cancer research in member states. From TeleSCAN, the following nodes can be accessed:
As a data collection tool for clinical trials, the EuroCODE network has been very successful and currently, over 40% of patients entered into EORTC trials are registered through EuroCODE. Currently users of EuroCODE services are mainly data managers and junior oncologists.
