Quality Measures

Measuring Quality at Kennedy for Better Patient Outcomes



Performance measures are a way for the healthcare community and the staff at the Kennedy Cancer Center to assess the quality of care being provided to patients compared to national recognized standards. There are many quality measures from various sources but those endorsed by the National Quality Forum (NQF) have been established as among the best. An NQF endorsed quality measure reflects scientific and evidence based review, input from patients and their families, and people throughout the healthcare industry.

Below are six NQF established measures for quality care in breast, colon, and rectal cancer. You will see how Kennedy compares to other facilities in the State of NJ and across all of the United States.

Upcoming Classes

Reflexology - 09/18/2014
Reflexology is a popular alternative therapy. It promotes relaxation, improves circulation, reduces pain, soothes tired feet, and encourages overall healing. It is also used for post-operative or palliative care. Reflexology is recommended as a complementary therapy and should not replace medical treatment.
