CATCH Initiative

CATCH Initiative

The AONN+ CATCH Initiative is a reporting system to track navigators’ interventions with positive outcomes to further highlight navigation value and efficiency. A “Catch” is considered a navigation win where the navigator caught an issue and intervened to correct it, benefiting the patient and providing the best practice outcome. Navigators utilize these skills in everyday practice, and AONN+ will now shine a light on the effect navigation has on patient care and outcomes.

Example “Catch”:

IncidentIntervention (CATCH)OutcomeMetric Alignment
