State of Cancer Care in America: 2017
The State of Cancer Care in America: 2017 report examines opportunities and challenges in the delivery of high-quality cancer care in the United States. The report, published annually by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), analyzes demographic, economic, and oncology practice trends affecting cancer care in the United States and describes how a rapidly transforming cancer care delivery system is responding to those changes.
This year’s report highlights progress in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care delivery, leading to increased numbers of cancer survivors and reduced incidence and mortality rates for many common cancers. Despite these gains, more people will be diagnosed with common aging-associated cancers as the U.S. population continues to grow and age—putting additional pressure on an already strained cancer care delivery system. Ensuring patient access to affordable, high-quality care remains a critical challenge.
