The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) is seeking a dynamic leader for its emerging Department of Cancer Care Delivery & Health Policy. ACCC is a powerful community comprising more than 25,000 multidisciplinary practitioners and 2,100 cancer programs and practices nationwide. The critical vision for this ACCC department is to advocate and innovate in support of a sustainable cancer care ecosystem that delivers care that is high quality and affordable to patients across the country.
Together with an engaged volunteer leadership and committed professional staff, the Department of Cancer Care Delivery & Health Policy will work to:
1) Improve cancer care delivery in all settings with emphasis on rural, urban, and under-resourced cancer programs. To this end, the Senior Director will build on existing ACCC provider resources by identifying unmet needs and developing innovative strategies and tools to support membership in an evolving healthcare environment.
2) Support the oncology workforce so that all professionals involved in caring for patients with cancer maximize their contribution to care delivery. In collaboration with ACCC’s strong provider network, the Department will advocate to ensure an adequate cancer care workforce in all regions of the country, engaging other clinical disciplines and patient stakeholders in this effort.
3) Transform reimbursement for cancer care delivery so that the needs of patients and professionals are met. In a transitioning healthcare environment, this will require input on and cultivation of innovative payment models that ensure access to care is preserved, while also working to retain adequate coverage and payment under the current reimbursement system.
The ideal candidate will be energized by this unique opportunity to work collaboratively with diverse oncology stakeholders—leaders and volunteers—to move transformative programs from concept to implementation. The strongest candidates will have excellent presentation, communications (written and verbal), and organizational skills. Must be able to manage multiple projects simultaneously, meet required deadlines, produce high-quality materials, and provide excellent customer service. Must be an articulate public speaker and able to represent ACCC policies and positions accurately and effectively. Overnight travel is an essential component of this position at approximately 25%.
Five to seven years of experience working in a healthcare delivery system, association, professional society or related field. Knowledge of health insurance and regulatory issues. Knowledge of the cancer care delivery landscape is preferred. Master’s degree or equivalent experience level.
Founded in 1974, ACCC brings together healthcare professionals across all disciplines in oncology to promote quality cancer care. It is estimated that 65 percent of the nation's cancer patients are treated by a member of ACCC.
Members rely on ACCC for education and advocacy support in adapting and responding to complex changes and challenges in the delivery of quality cancer care. ACCC provides resources on operations and management for programs and practices, reimbursement issues, policy and regulatory changes at the state and national levels, trends in cancer care, integrating new technologies and therapies, and more.
