Patient-Centered Oncology Care 2014

The American Journal of Managed Care hosted its 3rd annual Patient-Centered Oncology Care Meeting on November 13-14, 2014, in Baltimore, MD. Listen to the nation's top oncology and managed care professionals as they discuss value-based decisions on therapy, palliative care, the oncology medical home and reimbursement in diagnostics.
Panelists discuss ways to improve the focus on clinical utility in molecular diagnostics given challenges in the system and needs of patients.
Mobile health (mHealth) can be so much more than smartphone apps, and it is a growing movement in the United States that can empower patients, providers, and payers, according to Meg Maley, RN, BSN, founder and CEO of CanSurround.
Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law more than 4 years ago, many aspects of it are fairly new, which makes it difficult to analyze the impact the law has had on the United States healthcare system.
Although there have been some accusations of "cookbook medicine" with regards to measurement guidelines, panelists Dennis Scanlon, PhD, Jess DeMartino, PhD, Phyllis Torda, and Laura Long, MD, do see progress to remedy the situation and make guidelines more effective.
Although the healthcare industry values what it tends to measure, what is measured is not necessarily what should have the most value, according to John Fox, MD, senior medical director and associate vice president of medical affairs at Priority Health.
Education of both patients and providers will be necessary to temper expectations of cancer care treatment outcomes, according to panelists Ted Okon, BS, MBA, executive director of the Community Oncology Alliance, Debra Patt, MD, MPH, partner at Texas Oncology, and Stacie Dusetzina, PhD, assistant professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
