CancerLinQ® connects cancer care team members across the country with real-world cancer data. CancerLinQ combines the expertise of the country’s leading oncologists with big data analytics technology.
Through CancerLinQ participation, oncologists gain, at no cost to their practice, personalized guidance on treatment decisions by matching each patient’s care against quality standards and data from patients with similar characteristics.
As a result, patients in participating practices receive assurance that they get high-quality, evidence-based care no matter their location, and can benchmark their outcomes against ASCO’s clinical measures.
How It Works
When a practice participates in CancerLinQ, treatment information about the practice’s patients is added to a database that will include millions of other people with cancer. The cancer care team can use this information to help make decisions about their patients’ care, and, in turn, their patients’ information contributes to the care of others.
