In this inaugural report of “The State of Cancer Care in America, 2014,” American Society of Clinical Oncology examines the many factors that affect our nation’s ability to reach these goals, from current and projected demand for services and oncologist workforce supply to the full range of economic, regulatory, and administrative pressures that oncology practices face. This report also examines how a growing emphasis on quality measurement and demonstration of value, together with the rapid expansion of health information technology (HIT), stands to improve the care that patients receive.

ASCO presents this overview of the current state of cancer care in the United States with an eye to the future. The report includes recommendations intended for policymakers, cancer care professionals, researchers, and others with a stake in improving our nation’s cancer care system. Read more in ASCO’s 2014 State of Cancer Care in America Report or view the following:
