2018 Public Outcomes Reports – Standard 1/12
The Capital Health Comprehensive Breast Center (CHCBC) and Cancer Committee monitor the quality of the care provided to our patients being treated for breast cancer. It is very important that the physician leadership of the Center routinely monitor the diagnostic work-up and treatment given to patients to ensure that they follow national evidence-based guidelines to provide better outcomes.
The clinicians at Capital Health review a set of quality indicators recommended by the:
- National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers
- American College of Surgeons - Commission on Cancer
The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) is a group of national, and professional organizations focused on breast health and dedicated to the improvement of quality care for patients with diseases of the breast. These standards track many aspects of breast cancer care such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone-use and breast reconstruction.
Capital Health continues to go beyond the standards for these indicators and the quality of care offered to our patients meets national guidelines. To review our latest indicator report, please click on the link provided below.
