What is the COA Administrators' Network and what is its Mission?
Upon a recommendation of the COA Board, the Community Oncology Alliance (COA) Administrators' Network was created by a group of oncology practice administrators who, among other things, wanted to increase and enhance communications among practices. Unity in community oncology is more important than ever in these challenging times and COA is committed to helping practices through advocacy, communications, and education.
The COA Administrators' Network is referred to as "CAN" — reflecting the can-do spirit of community oncology practice administrators. The mission of CAN, consistent with the overall mission of COA, is to enhance communications among practice administrators within community oncology practices, especially relating to operational and reimbursement issues. COA is focused on protecting and enhancing the community oncology delivery system for the nation's cancer patients, of which 84% receive treatment in community oncology practices. In like manner, CAN is focused on increasing practice operating efficiencies and in providing a unified advocacy voice with both Medicare and public payers.
