Cancer Care Quality Measures

About Cancer Survival Outcomes, Quality Care and Patient Safety Measures

At the Lahey Health Cancer Institute (LHCI), we are proud of our excellent cancer survival rates, outstanding safety record, and low rate of complications during treatment.

We believe that cancer care is best delivered by teams of providers, who each contribute their knowledge and expertise. It may be reassuring to know that many experts are looking at your case and weighing in on your best chances for successful treatment and long-term survival.

How We Measure Quality

Several factors contribute to the overall high quality at the Lahey Health Cancer Institute:

  • Our guidelines for care, which are standardized throughout our affiliated service locations and are based on the very latest research and clinically proven practices
  • Our commitment to quality care and patient safety
  • Our Multidisciplinary Model of Care (MMOC) teams, which monitor quality and outcome metrics by cancer disease site across our service locations
  • The fact that our cancer care experts are available by phone 24/7, every day of the year
  • Our commitment to performing any necessary surgery with minimally invasive techniques if possible, to allow for a faster recovery with less pain
  • Our excellent patient navigators, who are with you throughout your course of care to provide guidance, information, advice, and assistance
