Oncology Practices

A Network For Improving Cancer Care

More than 100 oncology practices, representing more than 2,000 oncologists, are part of the CancerLinQ® network to improve patient care. Using this platform, which contains more than two million cancer patient records, clinicians can track the quality of care in their practices and identify gaps and opportunities for better care. 

How It Works

When a practice participates in CancerLinQ, treatment information about the practice’s patients is transferred from the practice’s electronic health record (EHR) into the secure CancerLinQ platform. The data is then curated and harmonized to help inform clinicians' care decisions, and uncover insights that can drive quality improvement.

Marin Cancer Care became the first practice to participate in CancerLinQ because we believe in its potential and can find value in the data collected.

CancerLinQ was helpful and informative even before I decided to use them for our MIPS submission. I look forward to working with them in future.
