Why NCBC Membership?

NCBC’s members are the instrumental component of our organization.

With a NCBC membership you not only receive benefits specific to breast health professionals but you also have an opportunity to apply your experience to the everyday challenges of a breast health facility. NCBC recognizes that our goal of improving breast care for patients is through evidence-based education, advocacy, certification and quality validation programs for NCBC members.

NCBC accomplishes this goal through the NCoBC Annual Conference, Info Exchange program, Navigator Certification, Certified Breast Examiner Certification, the NQMBC® Quality Program and many networking opportunities. If that is not enough, NCBC also partners with the most advanced breast health suppliers to give you the most up-to-date information through a bi-monthly member only newsletter.

The question to ask is...WHY NOT membership!

NCBC Facility Membership - More Value Than Ever Before!

Facility Membership includes:

  • Access to the NQMBC program - A quality initiative of the National Consortium of Breast Centers.
  • The Breast Center of Excellence Certification through NQMBC
  • National Quality Data Collection for participating member facility

 

The NQMBC is the only breast care-specific quality management program of its type.

Breast centers choosing to participate in the NQMBC will join a national quality documentation program based on clearly defined measures with a decade of experience, hundreds of participants and millions of data points. Participants possess the ability to confidentially compare themselves to all other program users with immediate feedback using user-specified filters to enhance relevance to one's own breast center.  In addition, the program allows participants to track their own performance over time. Participants may select any number of measures for submission---from one to the entire complement of measures.

The NQMBC is the only breast care-specific quality management program of its type, offering performance monitoring of service delivery, professional performance and clinical outcomes across the patient's journey from screening through diagnostics, surgery and adjuvant therapies. NQMBC is working with industry to automate the data collection process to reduce the time and resources necessary to develop a quality management program.  Through participation in NQMBC, data reporting requirements of accrediting agencies and payors can be met.

The NQMBC envisions and intends to facilitate a concise national breast care dataset based on performance measures with standardized definitions.
