AONN+ Standardized Metrics

The authors report on the use of technology to reduce the administrative burden of tumor boards while improving the quality of care delivered.
Danielle Carnival recognizes that data standardization is a huge problem in cancer care, and notes that the AONN+ standardized navigation metrics are a giant step toward making progress in this area.
The first discussions about value-based metrics development for oncology navigation took place in November 2015 at the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) Annual Conference. Key stakeholders within the AONN+ membership identified an opportunity to develop quality outcome measures for navigation.
The authors present findings from a focus group assessing the current state of administrative engagement in individual navigation programs.
AONN+ is excited to announce a partnership with Oncology Solutions, LLC, and the American Cancer Society to execute a national navigation metrics quality study.
To advance quality patient care and ensure all parties are working toward a common goal, navigators must integrate with oncology/hematology physician practices. At the AONN+ 8th Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference, Tricia Strusowski, RN, MS discussed approaches to integration.
The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators and Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, have announced their partnership in a pilot validation study of the 35 AONN+ standardized metrics for navigation programs.
