The State of Cancer Care in the U.S. via @ASCO

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH

‘ASCO’ the American Society of Clinical Oncology does great work… here’s just one example.

The State of Cancer Care in America

From the report:

The State of Cancer Care in America: 2014 report—released by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and published by the Journal of Oncology Practice here —is the first-ever, comprehensive look at demographic, economic, and oncology practice trends that will impact cancer care in the United States over the coming years.

With recommendations for addressing the cancer care delivery system’s most pressing concerns, this landmark ASCO report also examines the rapid expansion of health information technology and the growing emphasis on quality measurement and value.

ASCO developed the State of Cancer Care in America: 2014report to help cancer care providers, policy makers, and others more effectively shape the future of cancer care during these uncertain times. The Society will issue annual updates that will track trends and identify emerging issues.

Notes: The American Society of Clinical Oncology has released its first ever report on the State of Cancer Care in America. Peter Yu, MD, FASCO, discusses the report’s findings. Go here to learn more and follow ASCO on twitter via @asco.
