Organizational Structure

The CISNET administrative structure includes the six cancer site working groups, the information management center, the steering committee, and the computer programmers support group. Most projects are completed within the cancer site-specific working groups. The steering committee sets overall consortium policies and recommendations. The information management center runs the consortium members Web site, and developed and maintains the CISNET model documentation. The computer programmers support group provides a forum for discussion and collaboration for programmers across the consortium.
