Annual advances in cancer treatments and positive outcomes
When facing a cancer diagnosis, you need to know that your care is based on the best research and most up-to-date treatment plans. At Novant Health, we're dedicated to continual quality initiatives to improve patient outcomes. By partnering with our physicians, we track important data like proper work-up, treatments and surveillance for each patient. We then compare our information to national guidelines to ensure we’re offering care that is at, or above, the standard. All of this data is shared with cancer-based accrediting agencies and it plays an important role in maintaining our certifications.
An emerging area in the field of cancer quality is post-treatment surveillance. As more survivors live longer and better, we’re learning more about the importance of standardized follow-up and survivorship care. This information is collected, and compared to national benchmarks, then shared with appropriate accrediting agencies.
