  8. 8. HUMAN / STAFF RESOURCES • As reported by Daniel P McKellar MD, FACS, Chair of the Commission on Cancer at 2013 Survey Savvy • Based on a RQRS caseload of 161 cases a year, an increase of workload approximately equal to 0.7 abstract per day can be expected • Upon surveying users, over 50% reported less than 6 hour increase per week www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 8
  9. 9. HUMAN / STAFF RESOURCES NOTE: This is based on the initial 6 quality measures (3 breast, 2 colon, 1 rectal) www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 9
  10. 10. BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION • Commendation for Standard 5.2 • Reports from NCDB/RQRS on cases that fall out of compliance with CP3R • Ability to “catch” patients before they fall through the cracks – Delay/Lack of referral – Delay/Lack of treatment www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 10

FUTURE OF RQRS • 2013: Three (3) new breast measures will be added and the 1 rectal measure will be revised in CP3R program and will be reported in RQRS • 2014: Four (4) lung measures, 2 gastric measures and 1 esophageal measure will be added to CP3R and will be reported in RQRS • Minimally, this would mean 3 new sites would be reported via RQRS www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 11
  12. 12. FUTURE OF RQRS • Additional measures being evaluated for CP3R include ovarian, endometrial, cervical, G/U, melanoma, sarcoma, and pediatric oncology • This has the potential of 25 quality measures being reported via RQRS www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 12
  13. 13. FUTURE OF RQRS • Minimally, this would mean 7 new sites would be reported via RQRS • This would substantially increase the staff resources needed to participate in RQRS www.carecommunications.com 1.800.458.3544 13
