The National Cancer Screening Register enables a single electronic record for each person in Australia participating in cervical and bowel screening.

The National Cancer Screening Register gives better access to quality health information for healthcare providers and reduces effort for participants of the cancer screening programs to take control of their health.

Bowel and cervical cancers are among the most preventable types. The Register supports these important preventative programs by providing a national electronic infrastructure for the collection, storage, analysis and reporting of screening program data for the renewed National Cervical Screening Program and the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (transitioning in 2018).
