American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Cancer Quality Improvement Program (CQIP 2017) Released

The National Cancer Database (NCDB) is pleased to announce CQIP 2017 has been released. CoC-accredited programs are now able to access this report through CoC Datalinks.

We thank our programs for their patience as we extended the deadline to release CQIP this year. This annual report is unique in providing not only short-term quality and outcome data but also long-term outcome data including five-year survival rates for commonly treated malignancies stratified by stage. CQIP allows programs to assess their quality and outcomes based on the data submitted to the NCDB.

The 2017 CQIP report includes slides on:

  • Cancer Program Volume
  • Cancer Program In/Out Migration
  • CoC Quality Measure Reports
  • Volume of Selected Complex Cancer Operations
  • 30 and 90-Day Mortality after selected cancer operations
  • Unadjusted Survival Reports by stage for breast, colon and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
  • Risk Adjusted Survival hazards ratios by stage for breast, colon, and NSCLC
  • Site-specific reports for breast, colon, NSCLC, prostate and melanoma of the skin cancers
  • Twenty-three quality measure reports for 10 disease sites: Bladder(3), Breast(6), Cervix(3), Colon(2), Endomentrium (2), Gastric(1), Kidney(1), Non-Small Cell Lung(3), Ovary(1), and Rectum(1).

A complete CQIP Slide Directory is located in the 'About CQIP' tab of the CQIP reporting application.
