Quality measures reporting

As part of our Commission on Cancer (CoC) accreditation, we regularly review the quality of cancer care at ProHealth. We analyze our care using:

  • Data compiled from the National Cancer Database, which includes information submitted through cancer registries at all Commission on Cancer-accredited hospitals nationwide.
  • The CoC’s Cancer Program Practice Profile Reports (CP3R), which allow us to compare our care for certain types of cancer to national standards and continually improve our care to support the best outcomes.
