Are We Ready for the Moonshot?

NCCN Policy Summit to Address the State of HIT June 27 in Washington, D.C.

FORT WASHINGTON, PA — White House Cancer Task Force Executive Director Gregory Simon will join a broad array of stakeholders at the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) Policy Summit: Emerging Issues and Opportunities in Health Information Technology to address the state of health information technology (HIT), including the role and readiness of HIT systems in implementing the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative. The summit will take place at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Monday, June 27, 2016, from 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM. For press credentials, contact NCCN Communications Manager Katie Kiley Brown at brown@nccn.org

Clinical cancer care, related quality initiatives, and emerging coverage models for care continue to evolve; how ready is Health Information Technology (HIT) to support this shifting landscape and other advances, such as personalized medicine? Of issue include a lack of interoperability between systems, varying complexities of systems, and issues of proprietary interest limit the understanding and exchange of information across systems and stakeholders. Panelists will discuss these issues, their role in the cancer care continuum, how they interact with HIT systems, and ultimately how they are developing solutions necessary to move beyond meaningful to make gains in precision medicine and quality care.

This policy summit will gather the many stakeholders— clinicians, government and regulatory organizations, patient advocacy groups, pharma-biotech companies, providers, and HIT companies and vendors—who are crucial to understand the challenges and opportunities in utilizing HIT to improve cancer care .

Clifford Goodman, PhD, of The Lewin Group will moderate the summit, which will consist of short presentations followed by roundtable discussions with lively discourse and ample time for audience questions. An abbreviated agenda is below.

As developers of widely used NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) that set standards for cancer treatment in the United States and abroad, NCCN is invested in supporting the provision of high-quality, value-based cancer care. In addition to hosting this timely conversation about the emerging role of HIT, NCCN is committed to digitizing its products and ensuring their functionality across multiple HIT systems so that patients with cancer have access to appropriate care.
