All.Can International publishes report on data in cancer care
27 May 2021
At the All.Can Global Summit on 27–28 May 2021, All.Can International released its landmark report: Harnessing data for better cancer care. The report was produced by The Health Policy Partnership and The Health Value Alliance on behalf of All.Can.
Matthew Hickey, CEO of The Health Value Alliance and All.Can Research and Evidence Working Group Co-Chair, presented the findings of the report to an international audience of leaders in cancer policy.
Harnessing data for better cancer care assesses the essential role of data in cancer care to improve outcomes for all people with cancer. The report offers policymakers, care providers, patients and decision-makers a forward-looking view of how to ensure high-quality health data are systematically collected and used across the entire cancer care pathway.
‘Healthcare systems around the world have not fully harnessed the potential of data to transform cancer care – but we hope to move the needle forward with our report findings and recommendations.’
– Matthew Hickey, The Health Value Alliance
The report’s recommendations are based on a structured literature review, 16 expert interviews and consultation with the All.Can Data Working Group and an External Advisory Committee.
Ensuring we collect high-quality data across the cancer care pathway has the potential to improve the efficiency, and quality, of every aspect of cancer diagnosis and care. Overcoming challenges around data in cancer care is integral to ensuring the sustainability of health systems and delivering better care for patients.
