New White Paper on Patient-Centered Care

  • In June 2016, ACCC hosted the fourth annual Institute for the Future of Oncology forum. The just-released white paper, Empowering Patients, Engaging Providers: The Future of Patient-Centered Care in Oncology, is a reflection of the conversation from the forum. Through the discussion, participants identified seven key elements required to provide true patient-centered care: patient stories, navigation and coordination, interdisciplinary teams, appropriate reimbursement for services rendered, greater education, information technology connectivity and transparency, and decision support tools.
