The Value in Cancer Care (VCC) Network is a consortium of oncology providers, patients and patient advocates, payers and health system representatives committed to improving the value and efficiency of cancer care delivery in Washington State. These community members engage in HICOR's translational research, quality reporting and data science initiatives through the VCC Working Groups and the annual VCC Summit.
The VCC Working Groups convene over teleconference to guide HICOR's development and implementation of interventions designed to address critical gaps in cancer care in three priority areas:
1) End of Life Care / Goals of Care Discussions
2) Advanced Imaging and Testing in Breast Cancer Surveillance and Survivorship
3) Hospitalization and Emergency Department Use during Cancer Treatment
The annual Value in Cancer Care Summit is a full-day conference for patients, providers, clinic administrators and staff, health system representatives, nonprofit leaders, payers, researchers, academics, and industry/pharmaceutical representatives to collaborate on ways to achieve value in cancer care by increasing quality and reducing costs.
