ACCC Launches ICLIO for Community Oncologists

ICLIO promises to guide oncologists in community care practices to navigate the growing field of immuno-oncology.

Immuno-oncology, which has transformed the cancer treatment landscape, is rapidly being adopted into clinical practice and yielding promising results in oncology. However, questions about indications, biomarkers, cost of care, adverse effects, and reimbursement, remain. To help guide oncologists in community care practices to navigate this growing field, The Association of Community Cancer Centers has launched the Institute for Clinical Immuno-Oncology (ICLIO). Lee S. Schwartzberg, MD, FACP, chair of ICLIO had introduced ICLIO to our managed care readers through an article in Evidence-Based Oncology back in February.

ICLIO is open to all ACCC members, which includes more than 2000 cancer programs and 20,000 providers nationwide. ACCC estimates that nearly 60% of all cancer patients in the United States are treated by someone in the ACCC network.
