Jennie Crews, MD, MMM, FACP, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Network, is the outgoing president of the Associate of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC). Here she reflects on the highlights of her past year.
Crews's presidential theme was "empowering patients and engaging providers." The ACCC's Institute for the Future of Oncology focused on patient-centered care. They produced a whitepaper with 7 key elements to providing patient-centered care.
ACCC also worked with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to develop legislation as well as educate their members on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) initiatives such as the alternative payment models (APM) and the oncology care model (OCM).
