HMP’s Journal of Clinical Pathways and Association of Community Cancer Centers Announce Collaboration

October 25, 2019
Partnership will advance the organizations’ shared missions to further high-quality, value-based oncology care

MALVERN, PA (October 22, 2019) — HMP, a leader in health care events and education, today announced that its peer-reviewed publication, Journal of Clinical Pathways®, has formed a strategic partnership with the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC), a leading education and advocacy organization for the cancer care community.

Through this alliance, readers of the journal will benefit greatly from regular columns from ACCC and its membership on topics such as multidisciplinary approaches to care delivery, reimbursement issues, trends in cancer care, the evolving practice of oncology pharmacy, and integrating new technologies and therapies into practice. In addition, ACCC will gain significant reach to more value-based cancer care decision-makers through the journal’s robust print and digital distribution channels.

“We are very pleased to collaborate with ACCC,” said Kara A. Rosania, MSc, Senior Editorial Director, Oncology and Managed Markets Divisions, HMP. “The alliance will not only allow us to offer more value to our readers through a greater breadth of information on ACCC activities and research, but will also increase ACCC’s visibility and impact in the oncology and value-based care fields.”

ACCC has added Linda Frisk, PharmD, Clinical Pharmacist at Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers (Chandler, AZ), and member of the leadership team for the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association Inc., to the journal’s editorial advisory board. Dr. Frisk will provide the journal with expert guidance on the changing landscape of value-based cancer care and reimbursement models. 

“ACCC is pleased to collaborate with Journal of Clinical Pathways to advance the critical conversation on defining and demonstrating value in cancer care and to help promote innovative strategies to accomplish this,” said Leigh Boehmer, PharmD, BCOP, Medical Director, ACCC. “Through this partnership, we aim to increase our reach to value-based oncology care decision-makers and reduce current health system silos that can hinder innovative collaborations aimed at providing high-quality oncology services to patients.”


About Journal of Clinical Pathways

Founded in 2015, Journal of Clinical Pathways captures the shift in health care away from a fee-for-service system and toward a value-based care delivery and reimbursement model. The move towards value-based medicine combined with innovations in big data has brought clinical pathways to the forefront as a means to drive precision and optimization of care for patients. Journal of Clinical Pathways addresses the potential of clinical pathways to address rising health care costs, mitigate patient risk, reduce variability, and achieve better, more predictable clinical outcomes. In this unique publication, physicians, payers, and health care executives share methods, insights, and results of projects to design, implement, evaluate, and update clinical pathways in their organizations. Journal of Clinical Pathways is specifically positioned to address the design and implementation of value-based care approaches; the use of clinical and real-world evidence to drive treatment decision-making; and the early learnings and experiences of managed care professionals and health care organizations as they implement new models for achieving high-value care.
