Aligning Cancer Care with Patient Values

Providers seek to incorporate patient perspectives into the design of care, but what is it that patients value in their care and can this be reliably measured? The Consumer Cancer Care Value Index (CCVI), developed with funding from the National Patient Advocate Foundation, uses an innovative method to assess the alignment between what patients want in their cancer care and what they get.

The Index is designed to reflect what patients value most in their care. It will inform providers on how to structure care to align more closely with patients’ preferences by measuring what patients find most important in their care and the degree to which the aspects of care they value most are experienced during their treatment. AIR will develop, pilot test, revise, and conduct a field test of the instrument.
