Navigation 101

AONN+ Navigation Metrics Subcommittee Chair Tricia Strusowski talks about how clerical tasks take navigators away from their primary functions, and outlines practical ways for administrators to support navigators’ roles at their cancer programs.
As the move to value-based care and Alternative Payment Models (APMs) continues, oncology patient navigators must become more business savvy and have a full understanding about value-based cancer care metrics.
Although patient navigation services are becoming more common at cancer programs nationwide, physicians and administrators still frequently ask, “What are the responsibilities of the navigator?”
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.
Documentation by oncology patient navigators can play an important role in your cancer program’s efforts to comply with the new Commission on Cancer (CoC) Standards that became effective in 2015. This blog reviews documentation-tool compliance—in other words—how your documentation tools can help you demonstrate compliance with CoC Standard 3.1 Patient Navigation Process and Standard 3.2 Psychosocial Distress Screening.
