2017 ACCC Innovator Awards

ACCC Innovator Awards Criteria

Innovations should advance the goals of improving access, quality, and value in cancer care delivery. Applicants should fully explain how the program achieves these goals, and how it can be replicated in other cancer programs.

Possible focus areas include community outreach, at-risk populations, process improvement, supportive care, quality improvement initiatives, and immuno-oncology implementation.

Past Innovator Award winner topics include Reducing Patient Financial Distress, HPV Outreach and Education, Maximizing Tele-Health Technology, Enhancing Survivorship through Care Coordination, Outreach for Underserved Communities, Symptom Management Clinics, and Immunotherapy Access in Rural Settings.

Applications will be considered based on meeting one or more of the following:

  1. Is your program innovative, creating positive change for your patients and staff?
  2. Is it a new or improved approach to an issue often seen in cancer care delivery?
  3. Can this be replicated or adapted to other community-based cancer programs?
  4. Does this innovation advance patients’ access to quality cancer care? Does it result in more comprehensive service? Expand services? Provide a new service?
  5. Does your innovation look to eliminate inefficiencies and reduce cost of care? Improve care coordination among multidisciplinary team members?
  6. Will it be cost-effective to implement? Will it result in cost saving or generate measurable ROI?
  7. Does your program demonstrate value to patients and payers?
