The  St. Jude  Pediatric Oncology Facility Integrated Local Evaluation (PrOFILE) Tool provides full evaluations of health-system delivery, helping care teams and institutions  define an improvement strategy  to  increase  childhood cancer survival. 


The tool offers comprehensive, modular and guided institutional self-assessment. Multiple stakeholders can identify and prioritize solutions to improve care in their local region. PrOFILE also enables insightful benchmarking and local tracking of progress over time. 




Modules include national context, facility and local context, diagnostics, finances and resources, service capacity and service integration. Treatments, such as chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy  and supportive care, are also included. Other modules are patient,  personnel  and outcomes. 




PrOFILE has three phases of implementation: preparation, assessment  and interpretation and action. The PrOFILE team will assist in action plans based on a facility’s priorities, score-based analysis, ongoing monitoring and reporting of progress. 




PrOFILE provides qualitative and quantitative site reports with scoring and comments by  one of the 13  modules.
