Enhancing ambulatory operations to meet today's complex challenges
While the number of U.S. oncologists remains constant, changing market dynamics and survival rates have led to growing demand, creating new, complex challenges.
- Approximately 1.8 million new cancer cases are detected annually, with the majority of patients remaining alive five years after diagnosis.
- Growing numbers of patients are now seen in the outpatient setting.
- Increased insurance availability due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has led to more patients entering the healthcare system.
- The ACA’s emphasis on coordinating seamless patient care has increased focus on access, synchronization and patient satisfaction.
Dr. Chadi Nabhan, Chief Medical Officer for Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions, proposes several solutions to help practices meet these demands and coordinate care in the latest edition of Essential Insights.
