One of EMOL Health’s partners, the Quality Cancer Care Alliance (QCCA) has announced its intention to become a Clinically Integrated Network (CIN). The board of QCCA voted unanimously in favor of becoming a CIN on a national level, making it the first of its kind in terms of geographic coverage. Through the CIN model, the network will further support its practice members through a robust health information exchange, care coordination and management services, and contracting support that will allow for the development of better methods for delivering improved outcomes in all aspects of cancer care delivery.
