Data Aggregate System Seeks Oncology Nurse Ambassadors

Voice

Description

During a session at the 42nd Annual Congress in Denver, CO—on what happened to be National Nurses Day—the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) asked nurses to consider joining an initiative intended to gather, collate, and disseminate massive amounts of data to enhance evidence-based cancer diagnosis and treatment.

CancerLinQ, LLC, a not-for-profit subsidiary of ASCO, is a resource that ingests patient data from electronic health records of individual practices and institutions throughout the country. The data are then aggregated and disseminated so that professionals can use it to improve the quality of patient care and outcomes by comparing their current practice to real-world evidence.
