The Oncology Nursing Society is the steward of seven patient-centered, symptom-focused custom quality measures that have been codified into electronic format to facilitate extraction of data from the electronic health record. Because quality measurement is the cornerstone of the Quality Payment Program for providers in the pay-for-value framework, oncology nurses must be engaged in the quality measurement and improvement activities within their practice sites.


  • Use of patient-level electronic health record data has been mandated as a means of demonstrating the quality and value of care delivered to patients.
  • Quality measures data can be used to examine care processes and outcomes.
  • The Oncology Nursing Society's Oncology Qualified Clinical Data Registry provides real-time quality data to cancer centers and providers to guide performance improvement activities.
