In an evolving healthcare landscape, management and operations acumen is critical to sustain delivery of quality cancer care. Many factors—size, structure, geographical location, scope of services, staffing, patient population, payer mix, and more—directly impact management and operations of cancer programs and practices.
At the same time, providers face many shared challenges: orienting new-to-oncology staff with a 360-degree view of cancer program fundamentals, making a business care for hiring new staff, strategies for building staff resilience and well-being, integrating telehealth into practice, understanding evolving payment models, and more. ACCC management and operations resources connect real-world challenges with real-world solutions.
ACCC developed a series of five discipline-specific business briefs to justify the hiring supportive care staff. Stay tuned for more briefs in late 2021.
