Cancer and cardiovascular disease screening service delivery contractors are required to manually enter surveillance data in the Electronic Cancer Surveillance and Tracking Web application, otherwise known as eCaST.

Much of the training is different for each program collecting surveillance data through eCaST. Service delivery agencies seeking access to the eCaST system should contact their respective technical assistance staff person:
eCaST is a program management and public health surveillance tool, not an electronic health record. We developed eCaST in 2005. We maintain it meet U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Cancer, Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease (CCPD) grants program reporting and documentation requirements. Programs that collect surveillance data through eCaST include:
Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CDC-funded, we administer).
Colorectal Cancer Screening Program (CCPD-funded, University of Colorado Cancer Center administers).
WISEWOMAN (CDC- and state-funded, we administer).
Women’s Wellness Connection (CDC- and state-funded, we administer).
Based on data entered, contractor grant activity statements are generated within the eCaST application for programs we administer, making eCaST data entry the way these contractors access service delivery grant funds.
