POGO monitors and publicly reports on the burden of childhood cancer in Ontario, including cancer incidence (new cases), mortality (deaths) and survival over time and by population. We do this work using data stored in POGONIS, POGO’s childhood cancer database, which is linked to other databases. In addition, POGO provides data to hospital partners related to their case-mix, health service utilization, workload and outcomes to ensure high quality care for children with cancer in Ontario. POGO data reports are important for enhancing data-driven quality improvement, one of the five strategic goals of POGO’s Childhood Cancer Care Plan 2018-2023.
