Public Reporting of Outcomes of Breast Cancer

Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care is committed to sharing outcomes of our efforts to continuously evaluate and improve the quality of care we provide. Through feedback from patients, our own observations, national trends, and other sources, we continuously identify ways in which the care we provide at the Center can be improved. The Payson Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. All accredited cancer programs regularly send de-identified data on certain measures to the National Cancer Data Base. The following chart shows data derived from that submission on five measures regarding breast cancer. If you have questions, please call (603) 230-6000.

*Background: The Web-based Cancer Program Practice Profile Reports (CP3R) offer local providers comparative information to assess adherence to and consideration of standard care therapies for major cancers. This reporting tool provides a platform from which to promote continuous practice improvement to improve quality of patient care at the local level and also permits hospitals to compare their care for these patients relative to that of other providers.
