Cancer Registry Outsourcing. A Value-Multiplier Not a Substitute
Cancer Registry Outsourcing

CHAMPS Oncology is in the business of cancer registry outsourcing. In fact, we pride ourselves on our multidisciplinary team approach to cancer registry outsourcing – centered on quality, analytics, compliance, efficiency and education for more than 40 years. So today, I thought I’d take a closer look at how to decide if outsourcing is the right fit for your cancer program

Outsourcing, or the practice of allowing outside firms to perform work functions, has a place in most business settings. Large companies rely on it to cut costs, while smaller companies rely on it because they may not have options internally. Even in our personal lives, we rely on outsourcing – think financial planning, tax preparation, yard services, etc. Cost savings is often the motivation behind outsourcing, but there are several other important and valuable factors to consider.

Urgency
If quick resolution is a must, outsourcing makes good sense. Numerous factors can influence this – a sudden staff change, a significant opportunity or an upcoming deadline can all influence the level of urgency your program feels when considering cancer registry outsourcing.

Labor Costs
Continually hiring and training staff to address temporary and variable needs often yields less than favorable results. And repeating the process can be very expensive. Not to mention the costs associated with benefits, technology needs, work space, workers’ compensation, etc. Cancer registry outsourcing can reduce your labor costs and provide a sustainable long-term solution.

Increased Expertise
Additional expertise is vital to remaining competitive. The more unique and complicated the expertise, the more challenging and expensive the recruiting can be. Cancer registry outsourcing, with CHAMPS Oncology’s team of cancer registry experts in particular, helps to level the playing field immediately.

Increased Focus on Core Business
The more hats your organization wears, the more challenging it is to focus on your core business. Cancer registry outsourcing prevents your key talent from becoming distracted and allows them to dedicate their time to growing your core business. 

Resource Allocation
Outsourcing allows fixed costs to become variable costs, freeing up resources to support the core business. If capital expenditures are needed, or investments in business-specific initiatives are in the future, cancer registry outsourcing could support these goals.

Outsourcing can be an effective approach to reaching your cancer program’s goals. Successful outsourcing partnerships allow you to focus on what you do best, while benefiting from better resource allocation, efficiencies and equally focused partners.
