Linda Fleisher credits AONN+ for developing metrics to improve both process and clinical outcomes, as she believes it's important for all navigators to evaluate their programs to determine which metrics are most crucial for their specific needs.
The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is launching a collaborative project with Chartis Oncology Solutions and the American Cancer Society (ACS) to execute a national multisite navigation metrics quality study. The aim of this study is to gain insight and understanding into the barriers and challenges navigation programs encounter when implementing navigation metrics.
National Evidence-Based Oncology Navigation Metrics: Multisite Exploratory Study to Demonstrate Value and Sustainability of Navigation Programs
The AONN+ Standardized Metrics Task Force collaborated with Oncology Solutions, LLC, to develop the NAVmetrics™ cloud-based IT platform powered by Oncology Solutions’ ONC iQ® business intelligence tool for navigators to utilize for data capture, management, and reporting of navigation metrics. The study aim is to validate the Standardized Evidence-Based Oncology Navigation Metrics.
This educational initiative, derived from the 2017 AONN+ West Coast Regional Meeting, is designed to meet the educational needs of hematology/oncology nurse navigators and registered nurses; other healthcare professionals, such as patient navigators and social workers who have a focus on cancer and survivorship, are encouraged to participate.
These superheroes represent the 8 domains which encompass the AONN+ standardized navigation metrics and should help navigators to better understand the basis behind each domain and the skills necessary to provide quality patient care and financial stability for their organizations.
Ms. Strusowski recently co-authored an article on “Patient Navigation Metrics” for Oncology Issues, the journal of the Association of Community Cancer Centers. In this guest blog post, she explores this topic in the context of value-based care.
