One of the biggest barriers to patient-centered care is the gap between patient views of value-based care and physician and health system views. In December, Discern Health attended the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Patient Advocacy Summit: Delivering Value for Patients Across the Oncology Ecosystem in Washington, DC.
The summit highlighted the patient perspective on value-based and high-quality cancer care, the meaning of “value,” and the application of value-based constructs to policymaking and clinical decision-making. It also assessed progress on the installation of value across the health care ecosystem, utilization of tools, data collection efforts, evaluation of continued challenges, and next steps to promote patient-centered care.
