Institute’s Mission

 

The purpose of the Medical Directors Oncology Institute is to provide increased and on-going information and resources to Medical Directors from Purchasers, Health Plans and Provider Systems about Cancer. The Institute is led by an Executive Leadership Council of Medical Directors from purchasers, health plans and provider systems.

The NAMCP Medical Directors Oncology Institute is becoming very active in the world of oncology. We have had conversations with COA, NCCN and ASCO on working with medical directors to improve communications and issues between oncologists, hospitals and medical directors.



 



 

 

Overall survival (OS) remains the gold standard for oncology clinical trial endpoints. Over the years, however, such surrogate endpoints as objective response rate and progression-free survival have been employed because they can be reached faster and may offer important benefits in evaluating therapies.
