Cancer services are facing significant changes because of the requirements to measure and reward cost-effective care. This is affecting how services are coordinated, managed, and delivered. How are you responding?
The cost of treating cancer exceeds $100 billion annually, and treatment expenses for some patients may surpass $300,000. Oncology programs are increasingly being thrust into the national spotlight. While future-state reimbursement models that improve the value of cancer care are still emerging, oncology programs face one certainty: change.
