NCCN POLICY SUMMIT UPDATES > Article to be published in the spring of 2018.

On September 25, 2017, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) hosted a summit focused on defining, measuring, and paying for quality in cancer care. The summit examined the past and current efforts toward developing oncology quality measures, discuss the value of those measures, the role these measures play in payment models, and, whether patient care and the patient experience has improved as a result. The summit also explored the future of reporting of quality metrics and highlighted two best practices in quality reporting. The summit provided an opportunity for a varied group of stakeholders to thoughtfully discuss the development of quality measures, challenges of reporting, and the importance of incorporating the patient perspective.

A subsequent article of the summit will be published in JNCCN―Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.

Please check back often for additional updates regarding the summit. If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Nardi.
