OVERVIEW

Employers are key stakeholders in the U.S. health care system. In order to better understand the oncology-related needs of employers,  the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) engages with its Employer Advisory Group throughout the year to dialogue with experts about priority oncology care needs of employers and employees and identify opportunities for collaboration. This work culminates in the annual NCCN Employer Forum where the current state of oncology care and issues relevant in the employer ecosystem are at the forefront.
