The goal of ADCC’s efforts is to define and improve the quality of cancer care. ADCC is working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, other national quality groups, such as the National Quality Forum, and hospitals around the country – all part of a complicated but essential effort to adequately quantify effective cancer treatment quality measurements.

Based on government data, patients initially treated at a Dedicated Cancer Center have a five-year survival rate that is higher than those at community hospitals. This is true across all types of cancer, including the most common cancers – breast, colorectal, lung, and prostate.
