Hospitals, physicians, and clinical staff all want the same things for their patients and families – high quality, coordinated care. This is particularly important for cancer patients who have many specialists involved in their care – oncologists, radiologists, nurses, surgeons, pathologists, pharmacists, physical therapists and other clinical professionals. These same patients want to be assured that their health care providers, both private and hospital-based, develop plans of care in their specific tumor-site area of disease.
Increasingly, cancer programs across the country are embracing a multidisciplinary, tumor-specific team and program development approach to disease management as a means of not only improving clinical outcomes and coordination of care but also patients’ overall quality of life.
Oncology Solutions has helped establish 60 tumor-specific programs, facilitating 480 multidisciplinary team meetings at institutions nationwide. Working closely with hospital and cancer center administration, physicians and clinical staff, Oncology Solutions helps ensure that all necessary disciplines are contributing to decisions about patient care and that information is consistently and efficiently delivered among disciplines.
These programs also help ensure that providers are consistently tracking, reporting and improving on the quality metrics that will be required by payers in a future of value-based, pay-for-performance reimbursement models.
