What were the main takeaways from the Quality Cancer Care Alliance (QCCA) Winter Summit from the perspective of practice management?

The main takeaway that I walked away from the QCCA summit with is that this oncology world is getting more and more challenging. There’s so many things going on that we really need to work together as community oncology practices as much as possible in order to be able to respond to all the changes in the market, have a common voice about input we want to have in the market, and to also be able to benchmark with each other to have best practices and learn from each other.

There’s so many different things going on in so many different parts of the country, and a lot of times as a community oncology practice you feel sort of isolated, and what the QCCA program really did was give you a sense that there are a lot of other folks in the same boat with you and if we can all get on the same page and learn from each other and have a voice collectively we can make a difference.
