This working paper describes a targeted landscape review conducted to identify metrics to measure the status and performance of the oncology ecosystem. This builds on previous work characterising the health ecosystem across several domains and aims to test the utility and application of those domains in the oncology context both as an output and to inform wider learning on ecosystem structure and effectiveness.
The work was conducted to support the Milken Institute to measure the oncology ecosystem, as part of its wider project to develop a scorecard to measure the performance of the healthcare ecosystem. The work is likely to be of interest to research funders and evaluators, particularly those looking to develop indicators of ecosystem performance, or those interested in evaluation at a system level.
