The Commission on Cancer (CoC) publishes the Cancer Programs Practice Profile Reports (CP³R) which includes two measures for colon cancer
The (CP³R) measurement helps facilities to:
- Ensure patients are treated according to recognized standards of care,
- Promote quality improvement activities, and
- Accurately compare clinical performance among CoC accredited cancer programs.

Surveillance measures can be used at the community, regional, and/or national level to monitor patterns and trends of care in order to guide policymaking and resource allocation.
Quality Improvement measures are intended to be used for internal monitoring of performance within an organization or group so that analyses and subsequent remedial actions can be taken, as appropriate.
Accountability measures can be used for such purposes as public reporting, payment incentive programs, and the selection of providers by consumers, health plans, or purchasers.
