Cancer Program Practice Profile Reports (CP3R)
for Breast, Colon and Rectal Cancers Diagnosed 2009 - 2011 

Aspirus Wausau Hospital, Wausau, WI

Interpreting This Report: The estimated performance rates shown below provides your cancer program with an indication of the proportion of breast and colorectal patients treated according to recognized standards of care by diagnosis year. These proportions are computed based on data directly reported from your registry to the NCDB. This Cancer Program Practice Profile Reports (CP3R) application provides cancer programs with the opportunity to examine data to determine if these performance rates are representative of the care provided at the institution. Cancer programs have the ability to review and modify cases by clicking on “case review” for the measure of interest. Displayed performance rates are immediately updated once modifications via the CP3R are completed by cancer program staff, comparison rates are updated nightly. Note: Any modifications made online should be reflected at the local cancer registry. Cancer programs are encouraged to resubmit reconciled cases to the NCDB.

Background: The National Quality Forum (NQF) brought public and private payers together with consumers, researchers, and clinicians to broaden consensus on performance measures for breast and colorectal cancer.  The performance rates shown in the Cancer Program Practice Profile Reports (CP3R) match the specifications of the breast, colon and rectal cancer care measures endorsed by the NQF in April, 2007.  The Commission on Cancer has been actively engaged in this process.  The CoC has instituted the CP3R as a facility feedback mechanism to promote awareness of the importance of charting and coding accuracy in line with evidence based practice guidelines.  In light of the national movement towards Pay for Performance (P4P), these reports provide CoC-Approved programs with the ability to examine program-specific breast, colon and rectal cancer care practices.
