The Overland Park Regional Medical Center is in the process of becoming accredited by the American College of Surgeons, Commission on Cancer (CoC). The CoC publishes the Cancer Programs Practice Profile Reports (CP³R) which includes two measures for colon cancer.
The (CP³R) measurement helps facilities to:
- Ensure patients are treated according to recognized standards of care,
- Promote quality improvement activities, and
- Accurately compare clinical performance among CoC accredited cancer programs.
We compared our 2013 colon surgical cases to the most current CoC results for one of the CP3R colon cancer measures:
|At least 12 regional lymph nodes are removed and pathologically examined for resected colon cancer.|
|Overland Park Regional Medical Center||91%|
|American Cancer Society High Plains Division||85.6%|
