ACCC Innovator Awards

The Association of Community Cancer Centers' Innovator Awards, sponsored by GE Healthcare, honor member programs that have exhibited forward-thinking strategic planning and developed pioneering programs and creative solutions. Innovative programs advance the goals of improving access, quality, and/or cost-effectiveness of cancer care.

Innovator Award winners present their innovative programs at ACCC's annual National Oncology Conference. The innovators share their outstanding programs and replicable models with meeting attendees. Additionally, both ACCC and GE Healthcare promote these innovative programs to oncology care providers and the broader healthcare community throughout the year.
