Current and Future Trends in Oncology Care Delivery
According to the American Cancer Society, each year more than 1.7 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed. By 2020, 18 million cancer survivors are expected in the United States alone. Emerging research and technologies are helping to rapidly change the pace of oncology discovery, innovation and treatment. As a result, high costs, survivorship, and a focus on patient-driven care are transforming how cancer care is delivered.
In this webinar, Mara Bloom, JD, MS, Executive Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, will present the cancer center as a case study for how we can use service line management to engage stakeholders and streamline healthcare delivery, reduce costs, improve patient experience and encourage continued innovation and growth. She will also discuss how a multidisciplinary care model leads to greater collaboration among physicians and researchers. Bloom also will highlight how the latest therapies, technologies and care models, including home hospital, telemedicine and artificial intelligence will help shape the cancer center of the future.
