What Others are Saying

begin-quoteWhen ACCC came to Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center to conduct a Process Improvement Workshop, it gave our [financial navigation] program broad exposure and put it on the radar of executive leadership. We have made meaningful improvements in our workflow processes but the biggest win is that hospital leadership is now taking notice to support the redesign of our program. This is a major win for our cancer program.
