Policy report: Harnessing data for better cancer care

On 27 May 2021, All.Can International launched its latest policy report Harnessing data for better cancer care.

The report assesses the essential role of data in cancer care to improve outcomes for all people with cancer. It offers policymakers, care providers, patients and decision-makers a forward-looking view of how to ensure high-quality health data are systematically collected and used to improve outcomes for patients across the entire cancer care pathway.

All.Can data report featured in Fortune Health Italia

Fortune Health Italia magazine has published an op-ed by All.Can CEO Eduardo Pisani on the new All.Can policy report ‘Harnessing data for better cancer care’.

The article highlights the tremendous potential of data to drive quality, innovation and efficiency across the entire cancer care continuum. Currently, the lack of interoperability, compartmentalization of data, complex governance and limited capacity for secondary uses of data represent some of the obstacles to the implementation of effective policies in many countries. These challenges hinder the analysis and extraction of fundamental information from the available data to be able to make the best decisions. The European Health Data Space aims to tackle this by allowing access to and exchange of different types of health data, not only to support the delivery of health services but also for research and policy development purposes.

Patient survey report

In July 2019, we published the findings of the All.Can patient survey. Nearly 4,000 cancer patients and caregivers from 10 countries responded to the survey and shared their experiences on how cancer care can be improved. 

The report was very well received and obtained strong media coverage.
